PORZELLANIKON FOR TECHNOLOGY BUFFS
For those who love past technology and old machinery: The visitor service team offers daily demonstrations on the hour from 11 am to 4 pm using an original Steam Engine and a Ball Mill to show what conditions used to be like in the old porcelain factory.
If you’d like to know more, every Saturday you have the opportunity to take part in a personal Porcelain Trip in addition to the classic museum visit. The personal tour begins at 10:30 am and ends at around noon.
Ceramics in everyday life
In addition to the art of table setting, at Porzellanikon Selb we show you all the areas ceramics are used in everyday life. Catalysts in motor cars or industrial applications need ceramic substrates; fabric threads, which become razor sharp in high-speed production, are handled by ceramic thread guides. Technical ceramic materials are often unseen, but they are extremely important in many applications.
