In April 2008 The Museum of Ceramics lost most of its funding and we need your support now more than ever so that we can stay open. Since its original opening in 1980, the Museum of Ceramics had been funded almost completely by the Ohio Historic Society. We are now left to find alternative sources to replace what was cut by the OHS.
