Variety of ceramics
Every year the Raeren Pottery Museum organizes the Euregio Ceramics Market on the second weekend in September. Since 1996, 60 to 70 contemporary ceramists from all over Europe have participated: Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, France, Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Latvia are or have already been represented.
You can find everything from handcrafted tableware in small series to unique pieces, jewelry, garden ceramics, sculptures and abstract compositions.

All participants in the market are professionals who live from the pottery / ceramics. The Euregio Ceramics Prize is also awarded among them. These are purchase prizes of € 750 (1st prize), € 550 (2nd prize and audience award) and € 350 (3rd prize). The purchased ceramics are included in the collections of the Pottery Museum and presented in the permanent exhibition. In addition, the winners will be presented in detail in a group exhibition the following year.
