I had no idea that John Driscoll the American art and studio ceramic collector had died from covid , for those interested there is an interview with Mr Driscoll by Glen Adamson in the publication 'Things of beauty growing' about his collection .The collection i believe is coming up for sale at Maak and Phillips later in the year. Does anybody know if a catalogue has ever been published on his collection?

He did come over to the UK quite often up until maybe 10 to 12 years ago and visited me at the gallery and bought some pots too. I know that he had bought from Paul Rice for many years, before I came on the scene and, of course, from auctions here. I only found out that he had died just before Christmas but know that he passed away in May 2020.

I don't know if there is a catalogue of his collection but I am sure if he had wanted one then it would have happened. I guess you know, croker, that he owned the Babcock Galleries off Madison Avenue in New York, so he was extremely well connected. Maybe you could contact them to find out whether a catalogue exists?

On another thread I commented about some wealthy customers being obnoxious to say the least but John was the complete opposite. He was the archetypal gentleman and scholar.

Now you should know by now that Potty and I need to see your bottom - we're funny that way!
