Painshill is quite literally a living canvas, a 18th century landscaped masterpiece; inspired by landscape paintings. Incredibly designer Kerry Goodwin has been able to transform this 158-acre estate into a design where shadows dance across a Serpentine lake, and cast their intriguing forms across a ruined abbey, as Cedars of Lebanon soar into an amber dawn. Inspired by Renaissance art and his Grand Tours, Hon. Charles Hamilton (1738-1773) created a sequence of breath taking and surprising vistas at Painshill to compliment his vineyard, shrouding the estate in myths and legends. The landscapes form living works of art into which Hamilton placed follies, curved bridges, winding paths and the pièces de résistance, the ruins of a gothic abbey, which Kerry eclipses for dramatic effect through miniscule, brilliant-white snowdrops, each one bending its head in silent reverence.
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.
