I was always felt lucky in the past when I could stroll up and look at the collection in Paisley Museum , a York visit will take a little planning , but looks worth it , I wish museums would make catalogues of all the pots , a piccy book as such would surely sell quite well , PS I hate installations , they mean nothing to me and as far as I;m concerned nobody deserves that much space , especially when there are loads of great stuff stored away .

Certainly not in the collections of the four collectors that the vast majority of the work comes from. There are some other miscellaneous items and it is easy to miss things on the wall of pots shelves.

Interesting piece in the New York Times
I like how we're referred to as a "dwindling community of enthusiasts"  Laughter

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/07/30/arts/international/opening-of-ceramics-center-coincides-with-crafts-revival.html?referrer=


Apparently Clare Twomey only made 30 bowls in her installation of 10,000 pots. The rest were made by the local community.

Quite interesting , the 10,000 hours to become a master thing has been used many times before , golf being an example , it's nonsense ,like a lot of what's talked about art by these experts that around , i'd love to see some large exhibitions on show that don't for once feature Rie , Coper , Leach , Cardew ...JEEZ they were not THAT brilliant imo ( well Coper perhaps ), talked about the most ..sure but it's time to move on a tad , Pearson , Welch , Baldwin and the likes should be given much higher profiles / status , seems it's who you know rather than what you produce that counts , hence De Waal , Perry and the aptly named twomeny Laughter

I hear £7.50 is to be an entrance fee , bit much if you ask me , £2 & kids free would be better as not too many will fork out £7.50 especially families Nuh-huh

it could have been an introduction to pottery for tens of thousands of people but I suspect only pottery collectors will be willing to pay the entrance fee

I went to CoCA today and loved it some really beautiful pots.
I agree with Studio though about how difficult it is to find the maker of the pots on the long wall, good guessing game though to test knowledge, they are crammed in and overlapping too and difficult to see the top shelf.
Other cases are less crammed and get a really good look at the pots and bases under the glass shelves.
Its definitely worth the 7.50 entrance fee and you can go out and back in again so I was there for 3.5 hours in total. Will post some pics but wont upload at the mo.
