For The Clarice Cliff Collector, A Framed and Glazed Jack Gertson Test Colour Proof Print Titled ‘The Rich Colours of Clarice Cliff’ Dated 1995


This print is a 'Test Proof' for The Rich Designs of Clarice Cliff book.

Published 1995.

During the early part of 1995 when I had designed the basic format of the book I needed to assess two important points. Firstly, it was my intention was to enlarge the pictures so that the patterns filled the page even if it meant the complete piece of pottery was not shown.

At this point all other books on

Clarice Cliff (and probably all types of pottery) always showed the item in the centre of the picture with plain background (usually black) all around it.

The second point was a technical one. In order to capture the very bright and bold colours of the pottery some non standard printing ink colours were going to be used. A selection of pictures were chosen, similar but not exactly the same as used in the final book.

These were set up as the book layout and printed on the actual press that would be used for the production.

They were printed from standard metal printing plates which made this a very expensive process as only about half a dozen sheets were produced.

Only two examples of this print have been mounted and framed.

Jack Gertson


The frame measures approx 51cm x 41cm
