expo | Amai, Email! Belgium’s enamel industry

MIAT Gent | 03 December 201526 June 2016

When one thinks of enamel today, people usually come up with enamel advertising signs, which are popular by collectors and admirers of vintage design. However, a century ago, every day life would have been unimaginable without the use of enamel, since kitchenware, stoves, ovens, thermometers, and many other objects were all given a layer of enamel.

Amai, Email! displays for the first time hidden collections from the ingenious craft of enamel making to the public, and introduces the rich past of the enamel industry in Belgium, with more than one hundred original enamel advertising signs and objects of well known products.
