Market Intelligence – Fat Lava

It’s done! I’m delighted to announce that the second, revised and expanded, edition of my ground-breaking and sell-out bookalogue ‘Fat Lava: West German Ceramics of the 1960s & 70s‘ is now at the printers. Phew.
Since the first edition went out of print, demand for copies has been consistently high, leading to the decision to revise and reprint.
Some ‘inside intelligence’ now. Graham Cooley, my friend and owner of the collection shown in the first exhibition, was at the Kempton Park Antiques Fair earlier this week, and met up with a number of his German dealer contacts with a view to buy. All said that the supply in Germany has completely dried out. Nevertheless, demand is still rising, meaning that prices are increasing quicker and higher than ever. My advice? If you like it, get in there now, before it’s too late and prices rise too far.
The second edition of my catalogue will be available from mid-May, and will be launched at a second Fat Lava exhibition to be held at Mid20C from Saturday 30th May. To reserve your copy from this strictly limited print-run, email me at
