The bold, colourful hand-painted designs that Clarice Cliff combined with outrageous, French-inspired Art Deco shapes evoke all the uninhibited spirit of the 1920s and 30s. She added a new style to pottery decoration: landscapes overflowing with cottages embracing rainbow-coloured trees. In these she transcended Art Deco to give rise to a very British genre of pottery decoration.

Clarice Cliff was one of the most prominent ceramic designers of the twentieth century. Born in 1899 in the Staffordshire Potteries, she started work as just another factory girl, but by 1928 had launched her own range of pottery, 'Bizarre'. A 'gargantuan feast of colour', it blazed a trail through the homes of inter-war Britain. But if Clarice Cliff's rise from apprentice gilder to art director was remarkable - and all the more so for her being a woman - it was not without its tensions; for years she conducted a secret relationship with her married boss. Fusing art, design and industry and vividly conveying the texture of women's lives between the wars, this is a compelling study of the complex, talented woman whose work is for many the epitome of art deco.

The Design Encyclopedia is a compendium of the world of modern design over the last century and a half. Compiled from a number of primary and secondary sources by the American author and design historian Mel Byers, in consultation with an international team of design experts, this illustrated design reference guide provides the essential framework for a field that continues to generate intense interest worldwide. In this volume are all the essential facts pertaining to modern design: furniture and product design, graphic design, objects designed by architects, and the various styles and schools of design of the late nineteenth, twentieth, and early twenty-first centuries. With 832 pages and more than 700 full-color illustrations presenting the last 130 years in the history of the design of furniture, lighting, fabrics, ceramics, glassware, metalware, objects in a range of other materials, and mechanical, electrical, and electronic appliances, as well as automobiles and some inventions, this essential reference supplants Mr. Byers's earlier overview of the history of design, published in 1994. It is, however, not merely larger than its predecessor but more comprehensive, easier to navigate, and keenly focused. Here design is considered in terms of its concrete application to functional objects, relating it to craft, decorative arts, and industrial design but distinguishing it from fine art and theory. There are separate entries for designers and craftspeople, design studios, consortiums and partnerships, noteworthy manufacturers, significant historical periods and styles, and materials. The various discrete entries are organized alphabetically, and are cross-referenced where applicable. Most of the full-color illustrations are drawn from the world-renowned design collection of The Museum of Modern Art; the remainder are drawn from the Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen in Munich and Hamburg. This invaluable publication is the one essential guide for the design professional, the student, and the interested observer of design in our time.
