In the early 1970’s in Lancashire, England, sculptor Brian Ormerod and painter Simon Joyner came together to form Bronn Fine China, Ltd. Both had a passion for the medium of porcelain and decided to focus their considerable talents on exquisite but extremely limited works of art porcelain. They eventually opened a studio in the United States and created a wide range of pieces.
Today, because of their limited quantity and extraordinary detail, Bronn pieces are hard to come by, and each piece acquired by the Museum is considered a triumph in its own right. Bronn porcelains represent less than 5% of the Museum’s collection.
