“I was keen to incorporate butterflies into my design as Hugh always told me that I bring butterflies to life in clay - their delicate wings are far too light to be cast in clay but I spend hours drawing them in such a way that they could almost flutter off the vase.” Emma Bossons FRSA.
Not seen since Emma’s Spiraxia design of 1998, the harlequin flower now flourishes among red admiral butterflies, that shadow the colours of the flower itself, as they flutter below small clusters of cadmium, deep-red, widely-funnel-shaped blooms, with marmalade-yellow centres, surrounded by black to dark red marks. Cabbage white butterflies join the design, their dark eyes on white wings adding a rare delicacy of colour fusion as the design leaps from lipped buds and tightly clipped leaves to the red admiral before merging into the Fire Bloom of unsurpassed beauty.
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.
