If you have read my blog for a while you may remember my fist post on collecting West German Pottery, then I had only acquired a handful of these ceramics. Almost two years have passed since I wrote that first post and things have changes, a LOT.
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you already know I am deep in the throes of a full-fledged West German Pottery addiction. What you may not know is that I now have over three hundred pieces and counting. I don’t normally include these finds in my market posts because it may bore you non-ceramic enthusiasts to tears. “Oh surprise, surprise she bought more Fat Lava.” Rather than show you my collection piece by piece every week I figured you might like seeing the collection (well most of it…) all at once.
I know, I know I’ve gone a little overboard but with so many different sizes, shapes, glazes and colors I feel like I could collect these forever. Unfortunately in just over a month we move back to the States and the sources will run dry. I don’t know if the collecting will come to an end but it will definitely have to slow down. For the next few weeks I will be feeling the pressure to gather up as much as I can. When we get back to the States who knows? Some will be keepers, some I may sell but for now I am just enjoying the view.
