Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972743014, Paperback)

With a perceptive sense of design and uncommon business acumen, Barbara Willis became an industry leader in the colorful California Pottery movement of the 1940s and 1950s A modernist at heart, she helped make good design affordable for the modern home. After study with renowned ceramist and teacher, Laura Andreson, her combination crackle glaze and stained bisque floral containers and other household accessories started one of California Pottery's most pervasive trends. This book is the first to take an in-depth look at an accomplished career in clay that has had a startling resurgence in recent years. Works shown in beautiful color photos and include current values!
