Organised by the Straits Cultural Heritage Society:
 

 

The historic links of the Lion City with pottery and ceramics go back beyond 700 years. During the Age of Sail, they were carried on ships sailing the maritime trade routes through nearby waters, and some were traded on this island. Both imported and locally produced wares were also used in many aspects of daily life in the past.

 

By bringing together historical ceramics and pottery as well as associated materials, this exhibition weaves together the stories behind these humble wares to give a glimpse of how they made an impact on daily life in Singapore in the past, and how they continue to stay relevant in our lives today.
 

 

漫漫七百年的獅城歷史長河中,陶瓷器不僅不曾缺席,還成為人們日常生活中不可或缺的組成部分。在大航海時代,裝載著陶瓷器的帆船在獅城海域頻密川行,也曾在獅島留下行跡。無論是進口貨或本地產品,陶瓷器在人們日常生活中的用途更是五花八門,隨處可見它們的踪影。

 

本次特展串聯陶瓷器背後的各種故事,集中展出了歷史上出現在獅城的陶瓷器及其相關材料,以此回顧這些貌不驚人的器皿如何在本地歷史中扮演重要角色,並在時至今日依然能夠持續煥發新的意義與光彩。獅城陶事700年
