Ceramics of the 1950s by Graham McLaren
Book DescriptionBritish ceramics of the 1950s are highly evocative of a decade of optimism and change in British life. The austerity of war was quickly banished by a new breed of young consumer who had money to spend and who demanded ceramics which were bright, exciting and, above all, modern. This book considers how pottery manufacturers met this challenge, producing ware which is again prized today for its innovative and daring design.
