In Praise of Poppies vase from the Moorcroft collection. Made in Staffordshire, this hand painted and hand finished vase features an elegant poppy flower design. Designed by Nicola Slaney, In Praise of Poppies stood out from The Circles of Life Collection for its unusual colours, structured design, and its use of vibrant red poppies – one of the best-loved of all Moorcroft flowers. It radiates colourful simplicity which is a reliable hallmark of a fine piece of ceramic art. Moorcroft vases are made from a blend of china clay from Cornwall, mixed to their own recipe, which is then hand poured and moulded to the desired shape. Dimensions : H: 46cm, D: 22cm.
