NameMoorcroft: 100 Years of a Living Art Pottery
DescriptionIt is highly fitting that this exhibition of bold and beautiful Moorcroft pottery should take place at Blackwell, a house built little more than a decade before William Moorcroft first set up his own factory in Stoke-on-Trent, and whose beautiful handcrafted decoration was, like that of Moorcroft, inspired by the observation and stylisation of plants and natural forms. The incredible skill of the master craftsmen working at the turn of the last century is evident not only in the brilliantly-carved flora and fauna that adorn Blackwell’s interiors, but also in the vibrant, flowing forms of the fruit, flowers and foliage that shimmer from the surface of Moorcroft pottery. Together, Blackwell and Moorcroft constitute Arts and Crafts-inspired workmanship at its very best, and this exhibition presents a wonderful opportunity for visitors to experience how well Moorcroft’s luminous pottery and Blackwell’s finely-carved interiors complement one another.
