was founded in 1972 by a group of enthusiastic collectors. It has grown over the years and now has almost a thousand members in the UK and overseas. Even though they are unable to attend meetings, many members join the society for its publications which are recognised internationally and cited in very many ceramic publications. The society’s aims are to encourage research and to disseminate new information in as many different ways as possible.

In the past the NCS has held exhibitions in museums, accompanied by important catalogues. As the economic climate has changed, these have become too expensive to continue but the society still hopes to resume this programme in the future. In the meantime, the NCS is concentrating on its publications as these are available to all members and continue to encourage research.
