In the forest of the night, an ethereal amber flame from the ‘Land of Fire’ blazes within deep jungle greens; a Sumatran tiger prowls, observes and drinks in the spirit of poet William Blake’s The Tyger in this unsurpassed prestige vase. As its name suggests, this tiger subspecies is found only on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the sixth-largest island in the world. Today, all the world’s tigers are divided into just two subspecies and one, Panthera tigris sondaica, holds the Sumatran tiger as the only survivor with the Javan and Balinese populations extinct. It is in this prestige design that Blake’s immortal words may provide an answer. ‘What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? what dread grasp. Dare its deadly terrors clasp’.

Notwithstanding the mesmerizing creature with perfect definitions and extraordinary beauty, the Sumatran tiger is also a formable survivor. The poet’s fascination with the “Tyger” increases as he seems hypnotised by his fiery eyes to the point where he feels they came from a distant heavenly body. For the Moorcroft designer, there is a different stance. The design name comes from the mysterious, elusiveness of her tiger as it hides with fur like a burning flame running through the jungle. Vicky brings us what we seek – to know Tyger; gentle and vulnerable; fierce and untameable. Whilst Blake’s rhythmic poetry, adds flair and colour, it does raise questions. Look carefully, and Burning Bright gives the answer. It is all there: protecting the cub, often to the point of death, requiring water to drink, and of course, watching in pensive stillness in the forest of the night.
