Clarice Cliff was an English ceramic artist who was born in 1899 and died in 1972. She is known for designing and painting ceramics in an Art Deco style. Her first range was named Bizarre and her pieces were so popular that Bizarre became the name for all the work produced under her name.
Clarice Cliff's designs were bold and colourful often using orange, purple and blue but during World War 2 only white pottery was allowed to be made and she stopped designing.
We had been discussing copyright in our group and I was trying to come up with an idea to represent Clarice Cliff whilst still being original.
I liked one of her first designs and used the pattern as a background and took a photo of a white jug with some paint brushes in it to depict her work as a ceramic artist. I used the photo I had taken to make templates for an applique pattern.
