One of things I love about dealing with antique porcelain is that you never stop learning. I have assembled a large library of reference books and spend countless hours researching my pieces - and writing about them (watch the upcoming Homes & Antiques issues as I've been busy writing!). I have gotten to know many experts whose friendship and mentorship I treasure. I try to get things right, but sometimes get them wrong - and when I stand corrected by an expert I always dive in deeper. Sometimes I find out the person correcting me is wrong, and sometimes it is me who is on the wrong track. I always feel grateful as I get to learn more, and often gain new friends in the process!
