While collecting I always thought about leaving something behind for those that followed. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors could use as reference and those unfamiliar as introduction. This website is that "something".
One quickly realizes while collecting that there's not much information on the subject to be found. It was true when I collected and still true today. That being said there was one wonderful surprise - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". Not enough positive things can be said about the book's influence and impact over what I ended up being interested in.
My introduction to the world of ceramic feeders came when young and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother that she used when she was young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting it undoubtedly planted the seed.
This website's initial concept was to be continually updated with pictures of other's collections. This unfortunantly proved not possible. For what ever reason all invitations sent failed to get the interest I envisioned and after a while I stopped asking.
Hopefully this website is worthy of your visit.
