Moorcroft Launching Liberty Vase 62/11, Paul Hilditch
Moorcroft Launching Liberty Vase 62/11, by Moorcroft artist, Paul Hilditch.
Paul Hilditch's design of tale graceful ships launching off into adventure.
Liberty of London has remained resolute in their pursuit of quality, offering a rich heritage softly mixed with the avant-garde. The Tudor revival building which houses the great emporium today, was engineered to incorporate parts of HMS Hindustan and HMS Impregnable in 1924. This fantastically detailed design features the two ships whose wreckage went on to form the frontage of Liberty & Co. The ships toss and turn in the tumultuous seas, while dolphins and waves dance on the underside of the vase. It is a truly spectacular vision of the ships in all their glory before resourceful hands seized their dismantled wreckage to lay new foundations.
Numbered Edition #132
Created from the Moorcroft's studio own mix of Staffordshire clay, formed in their own molds, lathed into the perfect shape, decorated with tube-lined slip, painted according to their artist's designs in their own studio, and twice fired for brilliant colours, Moorcroft pottery remains a beautiful example of the old tradition of high end ceramics making that have been produced on location in Stoke-on Trent in England for hundreds of years. Inspired by the original arts and crafts designs of founder William Moorcroft since 1897, the company continues to produce stunning high quality ceramics today with its team of gifted artists in a continuing tradition of beautiful art pottery.
Small batch productions are a trademark of Moorcroft production that increases its desirability in the collectible market.
