They were saying that 30-40 years ago when the Big London auction houses started including studio pottery in their auctions. Sothebys, Christies, Phillips, and Bonhams all had specialist Studio Pottery Auctions.
That all collapsed after the financial crash of 2008-09, and the auction market for studio pottery has never really recovered. Its woken up a bit in the past few years, but nothing like it was.

hi, phipot,In my years as an antiques dealer i have seen a number of price crashes not always linked to the financial market, some have recovered some never will , fashion often dictates many of these downturns in the market.

Indeed, fashion comes, fashion goes. It seems that the Internet has just made it change faster!

Those look scrumptious .The Black and green looks especially interesting. Not a style I have seen much before. Any idea on dates? Can you give us any idea of what size they are?
Is that a sideboard you have them on? Brave you if they are! Lucky you especially, to have those to look at all the time.
Much envy here Laughter

hi, the largest black and green pot is 14.5 inches and the other two about half that ,we always keep our pots on pieces of furniture or open shelves ,we have had breakages in the past but thankfully only john bedding , corser and mary rich, all were demolished by a mad welsh corgi, i am not sure of the chronology of wards  pots so i find dating them difficult.

hi, i don't have favourite piece but the blue one has the least appeal to me ,I have a larger black and white piece that i quite like but that lives at my daughters house at present.I hope to buy one of his green striped pots this year if one becomes available at the right price.

hi, just seen a 24cm ward plain pot fetch £480 in sworders, this pot was in a previous sale at a higher estimate ,i alerted them to the damage(a crack) and they then changed the condition report and photos.I don't understand why anybody would buy a cracked pot for around £600 with premium.

The crack is pretty self evident from the online photos as well. The audience they get for their bi-weekly Interiors sale tends to be more Trade orientated. Somebody bidding on impulse in the room thinking they were getting a bargain and not doing an inspection? Anything is restorable of course, but looking at that crack it would be an expensive business.
