Liz Lees and Meg Wendy, both veteran art and antiques show producers, have formed a partnership to co-produce the New York Ceramics Fair.

Ms Lees of Caskey-Lees, founder of the event, asked Ms Wendy, who built up the Wendy Fairs empire with her mother Diane, to come out of retirement to join her in running the event, which runs for the 15th time from January 22-26 at the Bohemian National Hall, 321 East 73rd Street.
