While collecting I always thought about leaving something behind to help collectors and those that followed. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors might refer to for reference and those following for introduction. This website is that "something".
Collectors quickly realize when collecting that there's little information around to be found. It was true when I started and it's still true. That being said there was one important exception requiring highlight - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". There are not enough positive things that can be said about the book's impact and influence over what I ended up enjoying and collecting.
My introduction to the world of ceramic feeders came when I was shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother which she used when she was young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting I'm confident it planted the seed.
The website's initial concept was to be continually updated with the collections of others. This unfortunantly proved more difficult than I thought and after awhile I stopped asking.
