Overview

There are few pieces of pottery more recognisable than those designed by Clarice Cliff. For many, the epitome, of Art Deco, and 1930s style, Characterised by bold colour and lines, geometric shapes, and stylised representations of the countryside, Clarice Cliff's 'Bizarre' pottery is widely collected all over the world.

This book traces the story of Clarice Cliff and the pottery that she created. Born in 1899 and employed in The Potteries from the age of 13, Clarice was talented, ambitious and resourceful, and in 1927 she was given her own studio at the Newport Pottery, and for the next twelve years she produced a range of designs that were loved by countless ordinary thirties household, and have become icons of the age. Clarice Cliff expert Will Farmer examines each of Clarice's important styles and designs, with the help of a wealth of high quality colour illustrations. This will be the perfect introduction to this most popular of all British pottery.
