RSPB Rainham Marshes hosts Brimstone butterflies, known for their large greyish-green body and veiny, pointed wings. Delicately, Moorcroft’s artists transform these butterflies into ethereal angels with a miniscule hint of yellow-green, as they dart up towards seeded reeds.
Below, male Ruddy Darter dragonflies, whose blood-red, club-shaped abdomens are almost hidden by their soft, blossom-pink and white wings, flank an extremely rare, migrant Lesser Emperor dragonfly, recently found colonising at Rainham Marshes. The Lesser Emperor dragonfly holds wings out at right angles to its body, like a first world war biplane, as its abdomen with black lines running up the centre, act as markers, to the most beautiful cornflower-blue colouration near the top.
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.
