I remember years ago going into Alpha House Gallery in Sherborne, Dorset when Tony Birks ran the gallery just before a solo show of Homoky's opened. Tony was on the phone with red dots in hand and many pieces had sold or were in the process of being sold at what at the time seemed to me extremely high prices.

I guess people who were buying then aren't going to make their money back but.................

P.S. Why have you got Simon Day on your avatar, Ed?

I thought it looked a good auction to buy at but it's a long way from London.

It was SP , I am only 20 minutes away , I don't usually bother with auctions but this one appealed to me , I tried to get a Mike Casson Bowl but I stopped 300+ and was sorry to miss a Peter Smith Jug at about the same price , I was really impressed with his jug .

I'm surprised the Peter Smith went for that kind on money, as although you and I might like his work, it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Obviously, the people of South Wales have good taste.

That's partly why I was surprised.
