I grew up in the charming Winter Park, Florida area minutes from beautiful downtown and Central Park. Two of my favorite places were always the railroad station and The Morse Museum, both a stones throw away. Spending time at The Morse when I was a kid helped me to appreciate the art of Louis Comfort Tiffany. During the 80's I was fortunate to become acquainted with Dr. Hugh McKean. One of my friends Jeff worked for the McKean's as their chef, and another Charles was their driver. I was privileged to spend many evenings at the McKean Estate playing guitars and visiting. At that time I was learning about Tiffany and sending vintage guitars, art glass and other interesting items to Japan and Europe. Dr. McKean always enjoyed looking at my photographs and was kind and encouraging. He even autographed a copy of his book (below) for me The "Lost" Treasures of Louis Comfort Tiffany. It is no surprise I now find myself challenged to pursue his rare art pottery, that I was always told is like finding a “needle in a haystack”.

Currently, I am searching for as many examples as possible to document, catalog and study. I assist museums as well as private collectors in the aquisistion of Tiffany Pottery examples. My aim is to educate, promote as well as provide a venue and source for information about Tiffany Favrile Pottery. If you have a piece for sale or would like to build a collection, please inquire.

Tiffany displayed his love for the modest and his appreciation for the lovely, simple forms found in nature. He leaves us a tangilble part of his legacy in each rare example to be found.
