While collecting I always thought about leaving something behind once I stopped. Nothing big or fancy but something that collectors might use for reference and the unknowing as introduction. This is that "something".
One quickly realizes when collecting that there's not much information out there to be found. It was true when I started collecting and it remains true today. That being said there is 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 collecting.
My introduction to ceramic feeders came when young and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother that she used when young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting I give it credit for planting the seed.
The website's initial concept was to be continually updated with pictures of other's collections. This quickly proved unrealistic. For what ever reason all inquiries went ignored and after a while I stopped inquiring.
Thanks for visiting,
