Currently my collections iI started collecting art glass and art pottery in my early twenties - a long time ago. Never could stay focused on anything in particular. Currently my collections include some Loetz and other Bohemian glass, Imperial Art Glass from 1923-26, French ceramics from the late 19th Century through 1930 or so, German "Fat Lava", German post WWII studio ceramics, some mid-2oth Century American pots (Scheier, Beatrice Wood, Wildenhain/s, etc), Taxile Doat, George Ohr, Patrick Nordstrom, Libbey Glass, Ohio Potteries, Fulper, etc, etc. I believe I have a "good eye" but I am not an expert in most of what I collect. My thinking is to share pictures from my collection and relate whatever I do know about the objects - with the hope that, from time to time, other more knowledgeable collectors can add to the "conversation".
