After staying in San Francisco, the Slaney family drove to Yosemite National Park which Nicola describes as ‘one of the most beautiful places in the world I have ever visited’. Her pot features views of El Capitan and Half Dome from a Tunnel View. El Capitan, a vertical rock is the largest granite monolith in the world, rising more than 3000 feet above the valley floor and is a favourite for the most experienced rock climbers in the world. Half Dome is the most iconic granite formation in Yosemite, a result of glacial interaction with underlying rocks. It looks like a giant dome with half missing. The Moorcroft designer also featured its famous giant sequoias, waterfalls and of course the brown bear.
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.
