Me And Clarice Cliff
The staffordshire potteries was where a thirteen year old girl learnt her skills and wooed the World of ceramic art. She was Clarice Cliff and the year was in 1910 ..1913
The girl from the potteries
I have been mad on Clarice for many years now, I deeply admire her and although she is dead now I still look for her when out and about. That must sound strange to people who don't know about her, and her genius like art.
I know if I go to a large venue as in antique fair, in the centre of any big town, I am sure to see a hand painted work personally worked on by Clarice.
The jazz age of Art Deco
Who would have believed a young girl from the potteries would be the guiding light for such wonderful art pieces that are so longed for by many.
Her skills with a little mix of French expertise , maybe from inspiration of Monet and others,gave the world the ability to have a unique piece of art at a reasonable prize.
