The Thorough Collector
I am showing my work at a fair in the UK. A collector who has bought from me before, comes to my stand. I havn't seen him in a couple of years, he recognices me, but not my ceramics which has changed quite a lot in those years.
For a long time he is standing there, looking at the work. With his eyes and his hands. Thoroughly. I am telling him about the background for the changes in my work. He doesn't say much. In the end he says, that he will have to think about this development and what to make of it. Then he walks away.
Yes, he says at last and gives and approving nod. This is not what I expected, but it is a good development.
