Nicola set about to create a vase to showcase the true style of Iznik pottery where shape and surface design dance in perfect harmony. Iznik was a small town in north-west Anatolia and a major centre of production, producing some of the most accomplished examples of Islamic pottery.
In this Moorcroft design, tulips, carnations, cornflowers, forget-me-nots and other flowering plants seem to sway gently in a breeze, following the curved vase shape. The kaleidoscope of colours of 16th century Iznik pottery, where bold designs featured plant and flower-based patterns, weaves its way around the base of the vase. The colours change from coral pink and maroon carnation flowers, to Persian-style pale-blue tulips and striking yellow cornflower daisies, by a network of foliage where repeat patterns appear to be an illusion and a garden erupts before your eyes. In contrast, the neck of the vase is circled by a chain of tulips pointing towards the rim of this baluster-shaped vase which is itself flagged with a symmetrical Islamic style triangular pattern.
