Also known as sea parrots, these puffins circle the vase with their rotund features and comical gait. Yet there is something more. The curves of their pure-white eye-markings and lines on their beaks mimic the breath-taking linear structure of the soaring white chalk cliffs on which they perch.
Interestingly, a puffin has adaptations that enable it to bring lots of fish back to its chick in one go. Their tongues are rough to help them hold on to their slippery catch, while their beaks are cleverly hinged, allowing them to close parallel, keeping the fish in place. Moorcroft designer Emma Bossons draws the focus away from these curious sea parrots with the clever use of silver-coloured lustre on the fish to create The Bempton Catch.
