My first collectors fair ever and my first fair outside the UK so I'm really looking forward to it

In all probabilty a visit to the 'verzamelbeurs' in Utrecht will take place next weekend.

So if anybody wants any European pottery then let me know what your wish-list is and I'll see what I can do.

Just got back from the 'verzamelbeurs' in Utrecht which was really good - very quiet though in relation to last time I went in November. The usual tat but really some good stuff as well. Managed to spend nothing yet again. I feel I need to get some more knowledge about European pottery before I splash out - at the moment I don't know the difference between the good and the bad.

I did meet up with Hans Petersen though who was selling Inuit items done by a friend of his. He had some great Inuit stuff there made of serpentine. There was a particularly striking serpentine bear sculpture which was very impressive but way above my budget. I had a long chat with Hans and found out that he is a textile-artist working in Eindhoven so I looked him up on the Internet. His work is pretty good: http://www.galeriederoos-tilburg.nl/2010/09/borduren-een-tweede-natuur/. We got talking ceramics and he said that Rachel Wood was his favourite contemporary ceramicist and that it was her stuff I should be buying. Good advice perhaps.

All-in-all a productive day.

I like the three tiles and plate in the last photo. The rest I'd give a miss.

A few of the +/-2000 stands at this November's collectors fair:





















The price on the bottom of one of the green owls (see picture 8) was €200 ... now whether that was for one or the pair I have no idea!

Love the Inuit pieces but I bet they were expensive.
Also like that horse head plate,

I loved the Inuit pieces too but as you say they were expensive - prices ranged from €80 - €1200.

This is their website: http://www.canuit.com/

Love the serpentine polar bear on there by Willie Kolola ...

Horse head plate is really nice too. The prices there weren't too bad on that stall either. My girlfriend bought the yellow/orange and brown handled WG lava-style vase (next to the green clock) for €10.

I'm pleased to see Diarmuid Gavin has stopped ruining people's gardens in favour of a career in antiques Laughter
