body of work he produced there, helped define the entire art movement that was to become known as “Art Deco”. Erté is also known for creating extravagant costume, fashion and stage designs.

DESIGNER Royal Hickman came to Haeger Pottery near the end of the Art Deco period and created the Royal Haeger line which continues today. Known especially for his animal forms, Art Deco and modern influences were evident in Hickman’s flowing and elegant designs.

Art Deco was influenced by the art movements of Cubism, Futurism, and Constructivism. It is easy to see the modernization of many artistic styles and elements from the past, including Far and Middle Eastern design, Greek and Roman themes, even Egyptian and Mayan inspiration. starshinegallery/2707054904

The term “Art Deco” was inspired by the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris, but was not actually coined until the 1960’s when Bevis Hillier, a British historian and critic organized an exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in 1971. After this event, Art Deco made a come-back which continued with the popularization of graphic design in the 1980s. Art Deco was a major influence on many later artistic movements, including Memphis and Pop art.

elegant, functionality of Art Deco. His work was largely inspired by nature and classical Greek themes.

MATERIALS Many Art Deco designers rejected traditional materials for their work. They chose unusual, unique materials such as ebony, aluminum, lacquer, glass, stainless steel, marble, more rare expensive types of wood, even zebra skin. Pictured here is a beautiful and functional, marble and metal elevator piece.

Simple, geometric lines are inherent in Art Deco design; objects were simpler than Art Nouveau but were streamlined and elegant in their angular forms and vibrant colors.

Classified as “Recent Pop Art”, this young woman with cell phone is an example of modern artists recreating pop art that was originally inspired by the Art Deco period.

TYPOGRAPHY The sleek modern look of Art Deco is also clearly seen in typography. Many Art Deco type styles are all-cap fonts, and most are display designs because of their decorative nature. Type styles range from uncomplicated, lowwaisted monostroke designs, to ornate styles featuring double, triple or multi-lineal stroke details. Angular or curvy, elegant or playful, they all share the sophistication associated with that period.

These examples of Art Deco era color palettes feature primarily cool colors. The overall tone is cooler, and more metallic than the warm palettes of previous decades.

BEYOND AN ART-FORM Art Deco went beyond an artform, touching every part of life in time including: architecture, furniture, sculpture, clothing, costume design, stage and ballet sets, jewelry and graphic design. This Belkelite radio from the Art Deco period has a very colorful design and is highly collectable today.

Current design and art continue to be inspired by art deco themes. Rodney White, is a contemporary artist that paints in a vintage / retro weathered style echoing the old store signs and tins of the Art Deco period.

This style of simple elegance and abstraction be gan as a Modernist response to the elaborate, flowing, natural forms found in Art Nouveau, but it was also a reaction to the forced austerity of wartime life. This time period was filled with social changes and industrial advances. Modern elements are reflected in machine and automobile patterns, and shapes that echo stylized gears and wheels Natural elements like sunbursts and flowers are portrayed in a graceful, geometric way often in symmetrical arrangements.

Your electric meter is often adding up kilowatt hours when you don’t think you’re using an appliance. Unplug toasters and cell phone and other chargers when they’re not in use. Don’t use air fresheners that have to be plugged in. Use power strips. Cable boxes and video game boxes, and to a lesser extent TVs and VCRs, use almost as much energy when they’re off as when they’re on. Make it easy to turn them all the way off—plug them into a power strip and turn off the whole strip.

•Take Shorter Showers and Install a Low-Flow Shower Head Showers account for 2/3 of all water heating costs. Save 350 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $99 per year. Using less water in the shower means less energy to heat the water. Save 350 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $150.

Check your car’s air filter monthly. Save 800 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $130 per year.


cooling bills. If every household replaced just three 60-watt incandescent bulbs with CF bulbs, the pollution savings would be like taking 3.5 million cars off the road! If you were disappointed by CF bulbs in the past, it’s time to try again. Today’s energysaving bulbs can be used just about anywhere—as reading lights, in vanities and wall sconces. Some are dimmaable; others work in three-way lamps. All are cheaper and more attractive than earlier models. It’s easy to start saving money and electricity today.

Though we call them “lights,” traditional incandescent bulbs are actually small heaters that produce a little light — and waste a lot of energy making heat. (You know this if you’ve touched one that’s been on for a while!) In the 1880s, they revolutionized the world. But today, we can do better. Once dismissed as buzzing tubes in offices, fluorescent lights have gone compact and upscale. Energy-saving compact fluorescents (CFs) now rival Better the cozy, warm light of traditional bulbs. They use a fraction of alternatives the electricity, which means lower electricity bills and millions of tons less global warming pollution. And in the summer, because use more they don’t burn as hot as incandescent bulbs, they’ll lower your

•Choose Food Thoughtfully

There are lots of choices, so before switching all the bulbs in a room, try just one to make sure it gives the kind of light you want. Look for bulbs with a color temperature between 2650 and 2850 degrees Kelvin or labeled “warm white.”

2 Know your watts. Incandescent bulbs are known by how much power it takes to light them—a 40watt bulb is on the dim side and uses less power; a 100-watt bulb is bright and uses a lot of juice. Energy-saving CFs provide much more light per watt. Look for a CF bulb whose wattage is about one-quarter of the incandescent you’re replacing. For example, a CF bulb in the 15-watt range replaces around a 60-watt incandescent.

3 Check the shape and size. Both the CF bulb and its ballast (the bulb’s “engine” in between the glass and the screw-in part) can be bigger than standard incandescent bulbs. Inspect your lamp shade, the harp and the socket to ensure that your lamp can accommodate the CF bulb.

4 Be careful choosing CF bulbs to use with dimmers. In order for a CF bulb to work in a dimmer, it must be specially designed to do so. Read the package before you buy a CF bulb for a dimmer-controlled fixture.

5 Look for Energy Star. The most energy-efficient CF bulbs carry the Energy Star label, the imprimatur of the government-backed energy efficiency program.

6 Dispose of burnedout bulbs properly.


All fluorescent lights contain trace amounts of mercury. But don’t worry — there is far less mercury in CFs than in thermometers or old thermostats. Plus, using these bulbs helps prevent mercury from being released into the air from coalpowered power plants. When they burn out years down the road, recycle them.

7 See if your utility offers rebates. Energy-efficient bulbs help utility companies lessen their load at peak times, so sometimes they run special programs or rebates to encourage you to make the switch.
