DESIGNS OF RARITY

Here you will discover a selection of our Designs of Rarity, each one special and rare. Pieces will come and go, inevitably rarely available for long, so time is of the essence when you see a design that you desire, as it may disappear in Moorcroft’s historical archives before too long. Designs of Rarity will include designers’ trials, very small limited editions, original designers’ watercolours, flambé painted pieces recreating the red colour palette of yesteryear and unique connoisseurs’ pieces, in some cases with only one of each piece in existence.

Images offered by Roald Dahl are his ingredients of dreams, all set on a lidded jar The design embraces three dreams caught by a giant and stored in jars in his cave. The dream jars are drawn on the lid, and together they are “Phizzwizards” (Good aqua/blue dreams) and "Trogglehumpers” (Bad, nasty red/purple nightmares). The dreamer climbs mountains with a cat for company (Panel 1): a pet bee plays pop music instead of buzzing (Panel 2): the dreamer flies in a bathtub with silver wings (Panel 3).

Rarity: 1 of 2

Marks: Trial. 25.11.16, Tubelined: Clare Sneyd, Painted: Paul Hilditch

On her return from a design tour of Australia, Vicky delivered Possums in Blossom on a small, vase – an after thought, perhaps, but there are times when Vicky’s fascination for everything ‘down under’ may perhaps become too strong a pull one day. Her possums are gentle, shy creatures, peeping through yellow eucalyptus and deep pink hardenbergia blooms. These are the colours of Australia which come alive in the Moorcroft world of ceramic art.
