I collect and sell pottery, mainly from 1950 - 1980 and mostly WGP (West German Pottery), but I also have pottery from Holland, Italy, France and Scandinavia.
I mainly sell these on my website: www.retrominded.com but since July 2012 I also started a shop on Etsy. (under the name Retrominded)
In 2011 I organized an exhibition with Kevin James Graham in Amsterdam that was called "More than Fat Lava".
This was opened by Mr. Mark Hill and there was also a special guest / potter Mr. Thomas Kummer, who displayed some of his stunning pottery. Some of his pottery is now also for sale at my website.
I also collect pottery! This is Dutch pottery from Loré, designed by Matt Camps.
For a long time there was nothing known about this designer - or company.
In the book of M.P. Thomas, Deutsche Keramik und Porzellane der 60er und 70er Jahre, on page 41, picture nr. 90, you can see one of them, at that time still marked as unknown.
I did quite some research about this pottery, and wrote a view articles about it that are published in the book of Judith Miller & Mark Hill, Miller's Collectables 2012 - 2013 on page 94! and also for a Dutch magazine called "Verzamelen" number 293 in November 2012.
If anyone has further information that you want to share or Loré pottery for sale....please send me an email !
Since November 2013 I am also the proud co-author for the book about Heinz & Ingrid Siery by Arnoldsche Publishers. They where one of the great key designers of West German Pottery and worked for over 30 years in the German industry. The book gives a good review about their lives during that time in Germany and their enormous dedication for art and the museum they created of 6 farm houses, where they still live in till this present day.

But if you have questions about WGP, please don't hesitate to ask! I really hope that I could be a good help for you too!
