The Ceramics Market: Post 1950

Garth and Mark will discuss ceramics over the last 70 years and how the market forces and the artists have propelled some ceramics to move from the craft world into the category of fine art, and how that market, both dealers and auctions, have responded. Their focus will be both on ceramic sculpture, pots/vessels, and on some of the artists that create them.

1. Comic Books

The modern-day superhero was introduced to the world June, 1938 with Superman and Action Comics #1. After 82 years of continual comic production a once considered child’s book has evolved into a commoditized collectible equivalent to gold, oil, or the S&P 500. Learn the ins-and-outs of the comic book collecting community and how markets can change so rapidly. When is the right time to buy, sell, and what factors contribute to these market changes. Learn what makes two seemingly similar books drastically different in price, and finally learn how a comic from 2014 can be worth more than 100 different books from 1950 combined. The comic market, making every Antique Dealer scratch their head for the past 20 years.
