SPRING CLEAN

Post by dantheman on March 7th 2015, 1:20 pm

Today I decided to make a dent in my hoard so 4 large boxes of my 'under a tenner'  pottery has gone to the local charity shops and another box of £10 to £20 valued pots will be listed on ebay soon Most Excellent

I would like to thin my collection down to under a thousand pots but I'm not sure that I'll be able to shift that much pottery in 1 year

I used to have loads of pots etc but decided yonks ago it was a pointless thing , at the moment I try and keep it about a hundred or less and most are keepers , if I buy /find more it is only to quickly sell on .

Twomey is making 10000 pots for the opening of the York ceramics gallery later this year. It supposed to represent the 10000 hours it takes to become a good potter.

I think it takes about 10000 pots to become a good collector Happy

Iv'e had thousands over the yrs , but would not like to keep them all stashed in boxes /attics etc , what would be the point , obviously can't be appreciated like that , can only count as dust collecting junk or stock .

Bill Ismay never had that many and he was awarded the MBE.............. so it'll have to be Dame Naomi and Sir Guy.

I sold to a single collector and set the price myself.
I learned that making a small profit encourages serious collectors to buy in bulk

this was another good week for sales and I will be standing at a tiny collectors market in my home town in a couple of months time.
I did a rough calculation this morning and I am nearing the 1000 pot level which means I have shifted more than two thirds of my hoard! (the hoard that I intend to sell that is) Embarrassed
