Seconds Acorns JU9 Jug


A maze of pathways winding through valleys of mossy rocks and twisted roots of yew trees joined by bridges make Puzzlewood, located in the Forest of Dean, a unique and enchanting place. JRR Tolkien is even reputed to have taken his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth from Puzzlewood, and it is easy to see why with its ancient, organic formations. For a new perspective on nature-themed designs, Emma created a vibrant and fresh trio of jugs, covered in contemporary patterns, inspired by the woodland. Acorns, Forest and Feather are an entire brainchild of Emma’s, who even designed the brand-new, streamline jug shapes from scratch. As the jugs make their debut, they host a wonderful window of rhythmical pattern-work, modern shapes and forms, finished with an expert application of colour in just the right places.

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.
