    September QuizExciting New Book by Mark Hill

    I'm delighted to say that after six years of research, my book on mid-century modern, retro and vintage Italian ceramics has been published and is now available!

    The information in this book has never been published together before, and includes the rediscovery of a 'forgotten' factory. Names covered include Bitossi, Bagni, Bertoncello, Fantoni, Gambone, Fornasetti, and the factories on San Marino. This already hot market is set to rise - get in early!

    Alla Moda: Italian Ceramics of the 1950s-70s was launched in conjunction with a ground-breaking exhibition of ceramics from the Graham Cooley Collection. To see photos of the exhibition, please click here. To find out more about and buy your copy of the book, please click here.

    If you love West German 'Fat Lava' pottery, you'll love this!
