14th Mug Symposium

The annual 14th International Mug Symposium is a traditional event organised every odd year since 1989 by the Český porcelán, a.s. company. The mug symposia alternate regularly with symposia devoted to underglaze cobalt painting, organised by that same firm.

The mug symposia challenge artists to create every possible shape of mug or cup, employing original and creative ideas. These creations become an inspiration or even direct designs for industrial production which has been the main idea of these symposia.

The symposium and the exhibition are held under the auspices of Mrs. Helena Koenigsmarková, Director of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.

This year, it takes place from 12 until 22 June.
