Buying any contemporary Art or pottery for 'Investment' is a somewhat risky business. Who in heavens knows what taste might be like in ten or twenty years?

Tend to agree philpot but Ed does seem to like the work very much and if the worst comes to worst he can always start a Museum like JoetheHat and Troika-Ceramics.  Cheeky

life isn't worth a sh*t if you don't take a risk now and again and also it depends on how much you want to risk and can afford it , I am not boasting by any means but most of my collection has been bought through money made from buying low priced items and reselling ,so no risk involved at all really , hans coper pots were selling for less than £30 in 1971 , I won't live long enough to wait 30yrs to see what prices pots go for or for that matter care , tastes come and go , fads come and go you have to trust in your OWN instincts and not buy just because a critic has a book out pontificating about so & so , the maak auction is quite staid imo , good pots , yes , nice pots , but limited in appeal , boring even but I doubt they really care as long as punters buy the same old crap that keeps going around , there's more than a handful of samey potters & artists out there although you wouldn't think it sometimes .

well worth it though Ed, it persuades the viewer to see it as art and not just pottery

Yes Dan , I agree , whatever we have does look a million times better if displayed as it should , the right setting and light makes all worthwhile , even if it was very tricky , it's soooooooo heavy .

the mistake most pottery collectors make is to cram too much into a cabinet,we have a few forum members who illustrate this mistake to an extreme (you know who you are) Laughter
