Art Deco Ceramics by Greg Stevenson
Book DescriptionAn explosion of new ceramic design in the late 1920s and early 1930s introduced vibrant colours and dramatic angular shapes to the breakfast tables of Britain and the world. Never before or since has there been such diversity in British ceramics, as hundreds of manufacturers produced exciting new designs that embodied their enthusiasm for the 'bright new' age and continental modernism. Displaying an angular tea-set or a dinner service enamelled in a brilliant geometric pattern became proof that the owner was participating in the 'modern way' of living. Bay windows from John O'Groats to Land's End proudly exhibited the brightly coloured designs and impractical but glamourous ceramics from manufacturers such as Shelley, Wilkinson's, Wade Heath and Myott. This book also includes: information on how to identify and date ceramics at a glance; all the major designers including Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper and Charlotte Rhead; contectual information on how ceramics were displayed in the home.
