high profile collectors

Post by bistoboy on November 30th 2011, 5:18 pm

just watched this clip on youtube of Anna Wintour (Vogue editor) and spotted in the office some "wonderful" pieces of Clarice Cliff. I'm not really a fan of Ms Wintor or Clarice, but it's interesting to see that such a high profile woman in fashion has chosen to decorate her office with some of her ceramics. High praise indeed.

These pieces are in Anna Wintour office for years, so I really don't think this is a seasonal thing...

I can see why some would like CC , much in the same way as looking at a dog going by on a skateboard , it's like Oh look, n' that's it , primary colours on so so forms doesn't do it for me , I like a bit of substance in pottery , but only my opinion at the end of the day Laughter

she was a designer essentially I think some of those brightly coloured crudely painted abstract bizzare pieces are extraordinary I can't see how she got away with it or how it ever sold at the time compared to your average tea service

Not sure if this should go here or in the "Strange but true" thread........... but in the 1980s Clarice Cliff was the first pottery I collected.
