The ceramic auction market has really taken off this past year. A recent auction of the collection of the late Dr John P Driscoll, presented by Phillips and Maak Contemporary Ceramics, which exceeded the pre-sale estimate of £2 million and set a staggering 28 world auction records, is justifiable proof that ceramics are now being taken seriously in the art market. As Marijke Varrall-Jones, Director of Maak explains in this issue: ‘Driscoll was never in any doubt that ceramics could provide a vehicle for artistic expression equal to painting and sculpture’ – surely the record £651,700 paid for Hans Coper’s Monumental Ovoid Pot, is testament to that. Even though I am sure most of us cannot afford a Hans Coper or a Lucie Rie, perhaps investing in a piece by your favourite ceramic artist – the stars of the future – is the way forward. We have plenty of inspiration for you this issue, from Reiko Kaneko’s beautiful glazed fine bone china baubles on our front cover, to the wearable ceramics created by our emerging maker, Alexandra Gélinas. Plus, don’t miss our feature with the previous three winners of The Great Pottery Throw Down; Midori Takaki talking about the first pots that inspired her and our Masterclass with Dylan Bowen – we’ve got something for everyone.
