see you at the next fair Big Laughter

you don't educate stupid people. They drag you down rather than you raise them up. Run away fast 

"Modern Art" is produced by incompetents, sold by charlatans and bought by ignoramuses?

It is enlightening to juxtapose "Fine Art" to "Modern Art"

We will all see each other at the next fair!

On a serious note. Great condition items by good to great potters/potteries are harder to get than they are to sell. You don't need to discount perfect condition decorative art pottery or the best of studio. The only items I find stick around are ether damaged, restored, plain or are simply too large for most peoples displays.  The rest I am lucky to have them more than two or three months.

The exception to these rules is Martin brothers and William De Morgan. Anything by them sells in any condition.

Oh and my pet hate. Bowls! Last things to sell by anybody. Only thing worse is a damaged bowl (X2 if studio). May as well make crazy paving out of the shards. You will wear out the bubble wrap repacking the thing. So bad they don't even get stolen outside charity shops.
