This is a guide for Joe public on how, where and what to buy incontemporary studio ceramics as a collector. It looks at the bestvenues, from galleries and auctions to craft fairs and even car bootsales, and explains what to look for, or alternatively, to avoid. Itdiscusses the various types of studio pottery for the uninitiated, aswell as looking at the way people can collect items - only buyingpieces from a few specific potters, or collecting just teapots fromhundreds of places. Collecting Contemporary Ceramicsexamines the pros and cons ofcollecting for investment or for pleasure, and how to go about doingboth. It also discusses more abstract angles such as: Why do peoplecollect? With interviews from a few noted collectors and makers, thiswill open up a whole new world to those interested in collectingceramics but without the knowledge of where to go and what to lookfor.
