I heart McCoy Pottery, but I’m picky about the pieces I collect. I’m trying to collect pieces that are green, turquoise, pink or white. I want my collection to eventually have some visual punch, like Martha Stewart’s:

I found this picture of Martha Stewart’s amazing collection here.
Complicating my collecting is the fact that I never purchase online. I like what I buy to have been found in my city, or on a trip. I’m a sucker for sentiment! Happily, I found a new piece at a local antique shop just a few days ago. Here are a couple pics of some of my collection:

|Hello new addition!|
The colour combo of my newest planter reminds me of this kitchen featured recently on Apartment Therapy. I love, love, love this kitchen. So gorgeous.
|Thanks, Apartment Therapy, for this gorgeous inspiration!|

McCoy Pottery is really varied. There are different kinds of pieces (cookware, bowls, vases, lamps) and many, many different styles. I love the mid-century cool “Harmony” line featured on this blog.

For more info, there are plenty of books on collecting McCoy and here is a great website.
Anyone else collect McCoy Pottery or have a different kind of pottery collection?
