Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A swift flick through this book will leave you with the impression that the entire period covered was obsessed with earth colours. To an extent this is true as the pottery body is less amenable to a highly coloured palette than porcelain due to the relative lack of delicacy in modelling.
That said there are some outstanding pieces here. The lustres of Bernard Moore and William de Morgan, the high=fired glazes of Ruskin and Pilkington cut a swathe through earth tones.
Then there is the art deco with brighter colours like those used by Clarice Cliffe, the Ashstead Pottery, Poole and charlotte Reade.
The period covered goes right up to the Cardews and there are some minor potters of quality mentioned here that I was never aware of.
When this book was published \I was buying, selling and collecting studio pottery and looking at the price guide in the back was a source of humour for most dealers and collectors as the pieces here are mostly outstanding examples rather than typical items you were likely to find.
A useful feature of the book is the bibliography at the back and sources for further study listing magazine articles and exhibition catalogues.
At two hundred and forty pages of large format and nearly all in colour this is a good book to start researching the art and studio pottery of the period.
