House of Stoves, Keszthely

By visiting the exhibition in the house, we can learn about the different types of stoves and how they were made. The visitors are welcomed by potter and stove builder Imre Szalay, who shows the museum which is basically his workshop. In the first part we can see a maquette collection made up of 70 miniatures of stoves and furnaces from the 18th-19th centuries. These maquettes were made by the method as stoves were until the beginning of the 20th century. The second part of the exhibition showcases different items and artworks made of ceramics.

The third part is the workshop of Imre Szalay. While we watch him creating new tiles for the stoves we can ask him questions about his craft. He also offers guided tours in the museum where we can learn more about the history of stoves and his craft and we can even try making a tile.
