Overview

There are few pieces of pottery more recognisable than those designed by Clarice Cliff. For many her work is the epitome of Art Deco, characterised by bold colours and lines, geometric shapes, and stylised representations of the countryside. Employed in The Potteries from the age of thirteen, Clarice was talented and resourceful, and in 1927 she was given her own studio at the Newport Pottery where, for the next twelve years, she produced a range of sought-after designs that are as desirable and striking today as when they were first produced. Using a wealth of colour illustrations, Will Farmer introduces the story of Clarice Cliff and the pottery that reflects the spirit of the jazz age, and which is now collected all over the world.
