A detailed insight into the work of Eric Ravilious and the designs he produced for Wedgwood
This excellent book starts with ‘Eric Ravilious, a Memoir’ by Robert Harling before pages illustrated with pictures of the watercolour and pencil sketches that Ravilious produced for the crafts people at Wedgwood to transfer onto the wonderful range of ceramics they produced in the 1930s alongside large high resolution colour photographs of those Wedgwood pieces. The designs include the George VI commemorative Coronation Mug, the (much collected) Alphabet Mug and Nursery Ware designs.
These distinct mugs, plates, cups, teapots, jugs and more that Wedgwood produced from his designs are now much sought after by collectors. This book is the definitive book for anyone interested in this unique period of English design.
