Will Farmer has been actively involved with Fine Art & Antiques all his life having been raised in a home filled with collectors. His personal passion is for 20th century Decorative Arts which developed from the young age of just 12 years old when he first began amassing a collection of Clarice Cliff pottery. Today Will specialises in all things 20thcentury with particular interest in ceramics and glass of the period.
In 2001, he teamed up with fellow auctioneer Nick Davies to establish Fieldings Auctioneers Ltd based in Stourbridge in the West Midlands. Over recent years notable finds include a rare archive of books and printed material relating to the Stourbridge glass industry which reached over £22,000 and a collection of ceramic tiles which eventually sold for over £97,000.
Following earlier appearances on BBC’S “Going for a Song” and “Flog it” Will joined the BBC’S Antiques Roadshow in 2004 as an expert on ceramics and glass. Will is currently in the process of filming his sixth season with the show along with writing regular features for BBC’s Homes & Antiques and Live 24 Seven magazine together with a collection of guides on leading designers of the 20th century.
