Studio Glass 1960-2000 by Graham McLaren

Book Description

In this book, Dr. Graham McLaren considers one of the liveliest areas of the decorative arts to emerge during the second half of the twentieth century. The new approaches to glassmaking that evolved during the 1960s liberated glassmaking from the factory and placed it in the hands of individual glassmakers. The result has been a glassmaking movement that has produced colourful, innovative and exciting work. Concentrating on the British context, this book provides an introduction to the work of significant contemporary makers along with the themes and ideas that have shaped their work.

Ceramics of the 1960s by Graham McLaren Ceramics of the 1960s, Paperback (February 2001)

This book examines how ceramic designers and manufacturers responded to challenges ranging from 'The Look' identified by the fashion designer Mary Quant to the Psychedelia of the late 1960s.

Ceramics of the 1950s by Graham McLaren Ceramics of the 1950s, Paperback (January 1998)

British 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 demanded ceramics which were bright and modern. This book considers how pottery manufacturers met this challenge, producing ware which was also prized for design.
