The New York Times reported recently that six European cities were entering a joint venture to promote tourism through ceramics.

The project includes Delft, the Netherlands; Limoges, France; Faenza, Italy, Stoke-on-Trent, England; and Höhr-Grenzhausen and Selb, Germany. Together, they’re partnering in a $350,000 project which highlights their “shared history, heritage and visitor experience” through the lens of ceramics. A gateway to the project is through its under-construction web site: ViaCeram: the European Route of Ceramics.
The Route’s coordinator, Adeline Porchez, said that through the site people can find behind-the-scenes tours, workshops, itineraries, trip packages and links to surrounding areas and villages.
