Boehm Porcelain Collection

Massee Lane Gardens is home to the largest collection of Edward Marshall Boehm porcelain sculptures on public display in the United States. Two galleries, the Stevens-Taylor Gallery and the Annabelle Lundy Fetterman Educational Museum, showcase the porcelain collection. Other featured artists are Cybis, Connoisseur, and Bronn.

Edward Marshall Boehm (1913 – January 29, 1969) was a self-taught American sculptor known for his porcelain figures of birds and other wildlife. Boehm explained his choice of porcelain as the medium for his art as follows:

"Porcelain is a permanent creation. If properly processed and fired, its colors will never change; and it can be subjected to extreme temperatures without damage. It is a medium in which one can portray the everlasting beauty of form and color of wildlife and nature."

He and his wife founded an eponymous company, E.M. Boehm Studios, in 1950.
