New Buiner Glass at Goedewaagen
Nieuw Buinen - Until 1967 they were practically neighbours: the Nieuw Buiner Glasfabrieken formerly known as J. Meursing and the Royal Goedewaagen ceramics factory. One at Dwarsdiep and the beginning of Glaslaan, the other at the end of Glaslaan. The factories also had in common that they fired their ovens on peat from Nieuw Buinen for over a century. According to an anecdote by Aart Goedewaagen II in 1928, this was the best peat available in the Netherlands. Both factories also had their own potteries for a long time. As early as 1851, Meursing turned out pottery of its own as a support for glass-blowing.
In cooperation with glass documentalist Henk Niezing and collector Henk Brans, both from Nieuw Buinen, the Streekhistorisch Centrum Kanaalstreek Ter Marse and journalist Bernd Otter from the Dagblad van het Noorden, the Ceramic Museum Goedewaagen presents a representative exhibition of typical utility glass from the factory Bakker, Meursing and Nanninga. The exhibition will be supplemented on Glaslaan with a cartoon about the Nieuw Buiner glass industry and a modest presentation of stained glass windows by glazier Henry Duijvestijn from Gasselternijveenschemond.
Glass at the Ceramic Museum Goedewaagen till 31 July. Glaslaan 29, Nieuw Buinen: open Mon-Fri 10am-4pm and Sat-Sun 1pm-5pm. Special feature: weekend 30 and 31 July valuation of Dutch pottery by curator Friggo Visser.
