Andrew Casey: Art Deco Ceramics in Britain , Woodbridge, Antique Collectors' Club, 2008

Hard back, cloth bound with dust jacket, 264pp. numerous coloured illustrations. Focusing on the art deco ceramics that were produced by the British pottery industry during the late 1920s and early '30s. It examines the background of art deco and how it developed in France during the early 20th century and explores how European designers created new shapes and paterns an how these ideas were incorporated into British design. Wedgewood and Minton who made top of the range wares for the upper classes, were compelled, due to market forces, to produce art deco styled wares. Smaller factories were able to respond more quickly using hand-painted decoration, an important feature of art deco patterning, with the big names such as Clarice Cliff and Susie Cooper. 22 large and small pottery companies are given there own chapters.Information on 55 of the smaller manufacturers, some for the first time in a book, provides invaluable new sources of collecting.
