It's funny who you meet in this industry, and how easy it is to make friends. Wandering around the now (sadly) defunct Alexandra Palace antiques and collectables fair in north London last year, I came across the most wonderful stall that contained all sorts of modern treasures as well as some rather lovely Fat Lava vases. My interest was caught.
Chatting to the Dutch owners, it soon became clear that they were keen and experts in their area - as well as being lovely people. We've kept in touch and now they tell me that they have launched a new website specialising in these amazing vases. Visit Fat-Lava.com - NOW!
We're all responsible for promoting this much ignored area, and bringing to it the attention it deserves. Dianne and Rene join the ranks of the forward-thinking, along with Petra & Patrick of Outernational, Forrest of Ginforsodditiques and, I am sure, many more to come. Come on, you know you have the room for just one more vase...or maybe two. Oh, go on then, what's another to make it three...
