Geoffrey Clarke: a sculptor?s materials' is the first monograph to address the full range of this artist?s work, from stained glass to sculpture, jewellery to textiles, land art to medals. Initially trained in stained glass, Geoffrey Clarke (1924?2014) came to international recognition in 1952, as one of the young British sculptors who exhibited at the Venice Biennale. He rapidly became one of the most frequently commissioned architectural sculptors of the mid-twentieth century, developing an innovative casting technique using aluminium and establishing his own foundry at his home in Suffolk. Clarke?s versatility secured him commissions from banks, offices, universities and cathedrals (most notably, Coventry), which he approached with characteristic verve. Many of these works, sadly neglected, are now finding new audiences: Spirit of Electricity (1958?61) and Spiral Nebula (1962) were both listed Grade II by Historic England in 2016.

Geoffrey Clarke (1924-2014) was a pioneer in a golden age of British sculpture, whose fearless experimentation with new materials and processes saw him create works that epitomise the vibrancy of the post-war British art scene. This fully-illustrated catalogue raisonn´┐Ż, the first of its kind, confirms Clarke's position among the leading lights of a generation, which included Lynn Chadwick, Reg Butler and Kenneth Armitage. There are few familiar with the full scope of Clarke's prolific output - how it transgressed from early iron pieces, indicative of the 'geometry of fear', to elegant aluminium works and later wooden abstract pieces of the 1990s. Spanning nearly five decades of making, Clarke's impressive body of sculptural work is detailed alongside other elements of his diverse oeuvre - stained glass (including pieces created for Coventry Cathedral), silver, medals and textiles also feature. With catalogue entries accompanied by an exhibition history, list of public collections as well as a comprehensive bibliography, this book will be the definitive resource for curators, collectors, dealers and enthusiasts seeking a detailed overview of Clarke's important artistic contribution.
This practical course covers line engraving, drypoint, and the tonal variations of mezzotint and stipple; etching and the tonal variations of soft ground, aquatint, and sugar aquatint; relief prints and deep etch; and woodcut, linocut, and wood engraving. Constantly referencing the 156 illustrations reproduced throughout, the author achieves a fine balance between technique and theory.
This in-depth history of the interior design of ocean liners surveys the transient history of interior design in relation to the development of passenger shipping, from commissioning by the line owners, methods and sources for the original creation of designs through to its construction, use and influence. It is a short-lived branch of architecture and design, lasting an average of fifteen years. As the design and taste mirrors and reinforces cultural assumptions about national identity, gender, class and race, not only did the interiors of ocean going liners reflect the changing hierarchies of society and shifting patterns in globalization, but the glamour and styling of the liners were reflected back into the design of interiors on land. Combining design history, architecture history, material and visual cultures, Designing Liners is a richly multidisciplinary work for those studying or researching this application of interior design.
