I own quite a few pots that have a low market value but I would hate to sell them, in fact quite a few of the pots dotted around my house are made by little known potters but I display them prominently because they bring me pleasure.
So what pieces do you display and love because they appeal to your senses whilst knowing they have little to no market value?
I would like to see your favourite piece first if you have one.

I don't know if it works like that Dan. Often work  has value because it is some the best of its kind.  Say the third generation Leach school potters. Top three in value terms being Jim Malone, Phil Rogers and Mike Dodd. Equally they are widely regarded as actually Being the best Leach Potters of their generation.

             Quality outs.

I find I display less valuable pieces because of an emotional and not an aesthetic motive. They are various momento markers of specific times in one's life.

I couldn’t pick just one or just a handful. I buy them because I like them so they’re all special

Hmm, a difficult one. Maybe the pots I'd paid nothing for, that are actually really
fantastic pieces, particularly c1900s art-pottery.
I have paid over 1K for Langley, but many Items were pennies, including Langley!
There's not a lot of studio I really like TBH, just pick it up on occasions, if it's there
and it's going cheap!

I was hoping you would just post a pic of some unknown pot that surprised us with beauty and gave us insight into what sort of person you are, I guess it kinda half worked Rolling Eyes

So Crawford Street has shown us a little bit about himself and his love of 'artistic' images. I look forward to the next reveal

Lol! You would have loved the Willie man at Hatfield Art in Clay. One of the Cardiff students; Willies on plates and torso sculptures. If there had been just a willie on its own I would probably have bought it ;)
Sadly I neglected to take any photos, but this one was at The Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition. Sadly it was sold out.

mmmmmm….. Laughter


Anyways if you are talking about relative unknowns. These two boxes by Alan and Ruth Barratt- Danes were amongst the first we bought at auction, and have kept because of their quirkiness. They used to quite well known, butnot so much nowadays. Not the best of photos, just a quick snap!pots that you value most Img_8710pots that you value most Img_8711

I'm not a big fan of the "I've got a brown jug" brigade. Prefer quirky and fun and finding my own way.

These are some of my current favourites.

[L-R Farnahm jug,owl, Brian Andrew doormouse, Rosa Ramalho hedgehog, Ambleside pig, Bill Fisher lion and x4 Briglin penguins]

Well Dan, another valid thread could be "what's on my mantlepiece today"?

A Maltby flanked by 2 Clappisons, Tibor above etc.
