6 Tips on How to Display Your Pottery Collection

1.  Be dramatic.

2.  Use lighting creatively.   Highlight a favorite work with a pin spot or acknowledge it during the day with sunlight splashed across it.

3.  Group like with like or alternatively, let opposites attract.  It is the communication between disparate styles/potters that can heighten the individuality of each work.

4.  Integrate with other objects.   Silver, brass, paintings, plants, glassware, seashells, rocks/found objects are fine complements to pottery.

5.  Balance color palettes.  Place cool or hot colors together for one effect, but don’t be afraid to juxtapose colors for a surprising effect.

6.  Use your pottery daily.  Vases, plates, bowls, candle holders all were made to be used.
