My introduction to ceramic feeders came thirty plus years ago when given an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother from when she was young and ill. While the event did not trigger instant collecting it no doubt planted the seed.
I slowly developed a sense of obligation, not sure how else to say it, while collecting to leave something behind once I stopped. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors could refer to and novices get excited by. However limited and non authoratative this website is that "something".
The sense of obligation mentioned above mainly grew out of the frustration I felt while collecting regarding the informational void that existed, and still today. One notable exception to this was J.K. Crellin's wonderful book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". I can not say enough good things about this book which was the strongest influence over what I ended up collecting and enjoying.
Hopefully this website is worthy of your time and recommendation.
Kindest regards, Lawrence M. Webster
