This vase is new territory for Nicola Slaney, and for that reason alone, a serious challenge for even a leading ceramic designer. Nicola has always worked on the theory that on any design image, there is always room for more than a single image or inspired thought. In Pemberley, there are two of the most famous characters ever created by author Jane Austen, and Nicola puts both of them firmly centre stage. However, there is more to this design than just Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. At the base is a veritable feast of fruit and blossom that even William Moorcroft himself would have envied, but Nicola goes further and delivers an absolutely classic Moorcroft tree under which the couple stand together. The great house, Pemberley, home to the Darcy family for centuries, stands silently in the background, playing its own pivotal role in both Austen’s novel and Nicola’s design.
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.
