It would be easy to confuse the six-spot burnet for a butterfly as it zooms around during the day, but this brightly coloured insect is actually a moth. It is fairly widespread, though more coastal in the northerly parts of the UK, and they are a common sight in cliff-top habitats like Bempton. The moth’s curious thinly-scaled, grey-blue forewings contrast with 5 or 6 ruby-red spots and black body. Seated under a fanned sunburst motif of deep-pink milk thistle discs, this burnet moth is surrounded by stylised green bracts drawn with sweeping curves reminiscent of the Art Deco tradition.
What is a Moorcroft second? All our art pottery is closely inspected before it leaves the Moorcroft factory and the selection process is as rigorous as any in the world. As a result, not all pieces emerge unblemished in their quality assessment. The fault or faults may be in the finish of a piece, whether it be a tiny tubeline miss, an incorrectly painted petal, or a small glaze run. Seconds are not ‘red-dotted’, all of them are far too good for that, and each seconds piece has a charm and individuality of its own. Any fault is not structural and the piece can still be used for the purpose it was made.
