Book Description

1 Jan 1999
Throughout the twentieth century certain British ceramic designers have made an outstandingly influential contribution to the pottery industry. Against a backdrop of great artistic, economic and social change their ability to anticipate and to respond to the latest trends in art and design enabled them to lead the pottery market, rather than follow. In responding to the practical needs of the customer their work proved popular and commercial in its day and is now much sought after by collectors. Whilst many of the featured designers were most prolific and celebrated during the period between the wars, this publication also covers the austerity years of the forties and fifties. It then takes us through the innovative and expansive sixties and seventies, right up to the end of the century. This work, the first major study of its kind, concentrates on those pioneering designers who attempted to improve the quality of both shape and decoration by creating modern tableware designs that were contemporar

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential book for all pottery enthusiasts. 17 Oct 2001
By A Customer
As we have come to expect from Andrew, this is a beautifully illustrated book, meticulously researched, detailing in depth 20th Century pottery designers. A book that should be on every pottery collectors' shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL RESEARCHED! Well Done Casey! 27 Nov 2000
By A Customer
So much tripe has been written about the big names in British ceramic design that it is a breath of fresh air to see a book like this.
Andrew is a meticulous researcher, and stays well away from sweeping generalisations and romantic 'mythologies' about Clarice Cliff etc. So good to see a BALANCED view on things.
Particularly pleased with the new research on my favourite, Keith Murray. Andrew has taken the time to visit originaldesigners, and the closest families of those who are now dead, and you can't do better than that.
If 1930s Homes or Art Deco Ceramics are your thing, then why not do a search for my introductory guides - search for Greg Stevenson.
