The Exhibition

“Signed and Designed” British Art Pottery Circa 1870 - 2013

The exhibition will showcase carefully selected pieces from factories or designers that are amongst the finest in their field. Whether purchasing for investment or purely for pleasure, adding to a collection or looking for that special something, we hope to have things to tempt! Over the last 12 months items have been sourced specifically for this exhibition, many of which have been acquired from private collections. No items that feature in the exhibition have been offered for sale by AD antiques prior to the event; essentially they are “fresh to the market”. A number of pieces that feature in the exhibition have been consigned by clients to sell on a commission basis. Enquiries from clients interested in consigning items for future Exhibitions or Fairs are most welcome. Nothing will be sold prior to the opening of the exhibition at 12 0’clock on the 15th March. If you are unable to visit in person, we will be taking telephone sales from 12 o’clock. (No calls will be valid before that time.) The items in the catalogue will be fully illustrated online several weeks in advance with any damage or restoration noted. However if you would like a comprehensive condition report, or additional images, please enquire in good time; we will be unable to provide that information on the opening day. The opening few hours of the Show are generally very busy and because of the space constraints and limitations on numbers imposed by the museum we keep staff members to a minimum; we provide guests with “red spots” which can be initialled and placed on the label of any item they intend to purchase. A red spot is a commitment to buy. Items sold to clients known to us may be removed from the exhibition at the point of purchase. We are, however, happy to provide a complimentary postage service.

For free entrance into the museum please bring along your invitation.

Heidi Warr Heidi Warr has an established history in the collectable ceramic art market. She worked at Dennis Chinaworks for nearly 16 years and for many of them she was the principle decorator. Over the years she has amazed those who love and collect art pottery with her skill as a decorator. Her work has sold for thousands of pounds through Bonham’s Auction House and is on display in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Now Heidi has burst forth onto the collectable ceramic art market scene with her own range where she showcases herself as a competent and outstanding designer as well as one of the finest ceramic decorators. Heidi creates individual handmade slab built earthenware towers and decorates the pieces using traditional methods including sliptrailing, incising and different brush techniques with under-glaze colours, stains and oxides. These methods date back hundreds of years and she is keeping important traditions alive. The pieces she creates are bold statements which merge the traditional with the contemporary. Each design has a meaning and a message, which as an authentic artist she feels it is important to convey through her work. Seeing the execution of her skills on the earthenware towers, one is left in no doubt about the quality and desirability of the pieces. It is unquestionable that Heidi has a long career ahead of her; able to design, create and decorate her own ceramic art pottery. It is thrilling to be part of her journey as she grows as an artist and satisfies our passion for highly collectable and exquisitely decorated ceramic artwork. Having formally launched her debut collection at the AD antiques 2012 exhibition, and having enjoyed commercial success in the UK and overseas during 2012, the following pieces are from Heidi’s new range (the first major pieces in her second series) and are being exhibited for the first time at the Opening of the Exhibition.
