Clarice Cliff

This is the pottery of Clarice Cliff. I think that these art deco pieces are so fun. The colorful patterns interact with the geometric forms to create pottery that is playful and certainly very interesting to look at.  Even though her pottery was marketed to common people for everyday purposes, these are so much more than practical dishes. I read that she got her start by offering to paint defective ceramic pieces so that they would be more likely to sell. She covered them up with rich colors and busy geometric shapes. She was very creative!
