While collecting I always wanted to leave something behind to help collectors and those that followed. Nothing big or fancy but something that could be easily accessed and referred to for visual reference and for those that followed an introduction. This website is that "something".
Collectors quickly realize while collecting that there's unfortunately not much information about the subject out there to find. It was true when I started collecting and it remains true. That 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 by me regarding the book's impact and influence over what I ended up enjoying and collecting.
My introduction to ceramic feeders came when young and shown an odd looking spouted cup belonging to my grandmother from when she was a young girl. While the event did not trigger instant collecting I give it credit for planting the seed.
The website's initial concept was to be continually updated with new photos of other collector's collections. This unfortuantly proved immediately impossible. For whatever reason all my efforts and requests proved unsuccessful. For this I appologize.
All the best, TheFeederGuy
