The Rosenfield Collection





The trend for collecting and sharing collections has really been gathering pace the last few years. I’ve been seeing exciting examples cropping up everywhere from events like The Museum of Everything which curates wondrously themed exhibitions each year and Miracles and Charms at The Wellcome Collection [see previous post].

What’s really nice to discover however is the odd private collection spied online with passionate collectors obsessively documenting their Achilles heel.

I happened upon the insanely covetable ceramics archive of anonymous collectors David and Louise Rosenfield with no more information given about themselves aside from the words “This site currently contains 1,864 works by 413 artists. This represents a small portion of the collection. We’re adding the work as fast as we can but the collection keeps growing. Who knows when we’ll catch up…”

From plates, to tumblers, to platters and bowls, glazed and unglazed, brightly coloured and of earthy hues, you will find them all here. Wouldn’t you love to see the space in which all 1,864 are stored…? [Edit: I have since discovered that they are based in Dallas, Texas]
