"Friendship Forged in Fire: British Ceramics in America" will be on display through May 5, according to a statement from the museum.
The exhibition features industrial potteries of the Victorian Era, pieces from the Arts and Crafts Movement and of artists who took a more traditionalist approach to ceramic art such as Bernard Leach, the statement said.
Works by modern ceramic artists such as Lucie Rie, Hans Coper and Ruth Duckworth will also be part of the exhibit.
Along with the exhibition two additional components have been brought to The Vault in the Museum.
The first exhibit features two pieces of work by London artists Barnaby Barford including the short, animated film "Barford: Damaged Goods" and a porcelain and mixed media piece called "Happily Ever After," the statement said.
The second component is the documentary entitled "Site Specific: Marl Hole," which follows the work of four world-renowned ceramic artists and their efforts to create pieces tied to Marl Hole, Europe's largest working clay quarry.
A grand opening and reception for "Friendship Forged in Fire: British Ceramics in America" and for "Barnaby Barford: Damaged Goods" will be from 6 to 9 p.m, today.
