My introduction to ceramic feeders came when I was eighteen and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother that she used when she was a young girl. While the event did not trigger immediate collecting it obviously planted some sort of seed.
While collecting a slow and gradual sense of obligation developed to leave something behind for others once I stopped. Not big or fancy but something that collectors could use as a visual reference and those unfamiliar as an introduction and roadmap. This website, with its limitations and short comings, is that "something".
One quickly realizes when collecting that there's not much information out there. While certainly true earlier its still unfortunately true today. With that said there was one exception when I started collecting - J.K. Crellin's wonderful book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". There are not enough positive things I can say about the book, its impact on what I enjoyed collecting and its continued influence over the years regarding what I appreciate and enjoy.
Hopefully this website is worthy of your time, repeated visits and most importantly recommendation to others.
