My introduction to ceramic feeders came when shown an odd looking spouted vessel used by my grandmother when she was young. While the event did not trigger instant collecting it obviously planted a seed.
While collecting a slowly developed a sense of obligation to leave something behind when I stopped. Nothing big nor fancy but something that collectors could use and make reference to and novices learn and hopefully get excited by. However limited this website is that "something".
My sense of obligation grew in large part out of the informational void continually experienced while collecting - and which unfortunately in my opinion continues to exist. One notable exception to this was J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". I can not say enough good things about this book and its continued influence over what I collected and enjoy.
Hopefully this website is worthy of your time, your repeated return and your recommendation to others.
