My introduction to ceramic feeders came in my 30s when shown an odd looking long spouted cup belonging to my grandmother from when she was a young girl. While the event did not trigger instant collecting it certainly opened the possibility.
I slowly developed a sense of obligation during my time collecting to leave something behind once I stopped. Nothing big, fancy or authorative but something collectors could refer to and novices be excited by. However limited this website is that "something".
While collecting, and for the most part even today, I always found there to be an informational void on the subject with the exception for J.K. Crellin's book entitled "Medical Ceramics in the Welcome Institute". I still can not say enough about this book that continues to be the strongest influence over what I enjoy and collect.
Hopefully this website is worthy of your time and recommendation to others.
