Final Selections from the Dr John P Driscoll Collection

11 - 14 Dec

Maak presents the final selection from the late Dr John P Driscoll collection of important studio ceramics, in a special online only auction.  Following the record breaking success of the single owner presentations in 2021 and 2022, followed by curated offerings in Maak’s contemporary ceramics auctions over the past two years, this auction represents the final group of works to be sold and the last opportunity to acquire pieces directly from the world renowned collection of Dr John Driscoll.


Maak launches Contemporary Craft auctions

The Contemporary Craft Collection of the late Victoria, Lady de Rothschild, achieves record-breaking global sales.

‘We are delighted at the strength of bidding in our inaugural Contemporary Craft auction. Having the opportunity to launch Maak’s expansion of our very focused area of speciality with such an extraordinary collection has been a real gift, whilst the extended exhibition at Ascott House has allowed us to build so many new relationships with a highly knowledgeable international collectors audience over the last six months.

What is very apparent from our many conversations, is the recognition that there is a real need and desire for a secondary market for contemporary craft, which is very much in its infancy at present and so needs careful and considered nurturing to allow it to flourish. Many of the artists represented in this collection had not been offered at auction before and so to have seen such strong bidding resulting in over 80% of the collection being sold is hugely encouraging.”

Marijke Varrall-Jones | Founding Director of Maak
