INTERNATIONAL PORCELAIN ARTISTS AND TEACHERS, INC. (IPAT)
is a 501-C3 Texas Non-Profit Corporation dedicated to the promotion and education of porcelain and kiln art and to ensure the survival of this art form.
The IPAT Museum and Office moved to its present location at 204 East Franklin Street in Grapevine, Texas 76051 in 1998.
In 2020, the museum headquarters was completely renovated and restored with funds of $170,000.00 from a 1990 endowment specifically for building renovation. In addition, various members donated twenty seven new cabinets as well as over 100 new porcelain artworks to increase the quality of work displayed at the museum. By now IPAT Museum is a sophisticated, world-class porcelain art museum showcasing nearly 2000 porcelain artworks.
