While collecting I always thought about leaving something behind once I stopped. Something that collectors could use for reference and the unfamiliar as an introduction. This website is that "something".
While there was relatively little information on the subject to be found while collecting there was one wonderful exception - J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". Not enough positive things can be said about the book influence over what I ended up collecting.
My introduction to the world of ceramic feeders came when shown a blue & white transfer-printed spouted cup of my grandmothers that she used when she was young. While the event didn't trigger instant collecting it obviously opened a door.
My website's initial concept was to be continually updated with more and more pictures of other's collections. This unfortunately proved harder than I thought and wishful thinking on my part and after multiple unsuccessful inquiries I stopped asking.
It is my ultimate hope that new generations of collectors emerge and this website played a small role in it.
