5.0 out of 5 stars a great read on Clarice Cliff, 24 Jun 2007
This is definitely my favourite of all the Clarice Cliff books. It covers her life fully and then explains how her pottery became so popular in the 30 years after her death. It has more archive images than any of the other books. I particularly like that the author interviewed many of the old paintresses who worked under Clarice Cliff from 1927. I felt I knew about Clarice as a woman much more after reading this. Anyone who doubts Clarice's skills should look at the picture with 3 Lido Lady ash trays, stunning art deco figures.
