Moorcroft is a leading name in the world of pottery, which uses heritage craft techniques to produce globally admired fine-art pottery
The first pieces of Moorcroft were made in 1897 when the ground-breaking ceramicist William Moorcroft first began creating pieces in Stoke-on-Trent. Today Moorcroft continues to create art pottery using heritage craft techniques and an acclaimed line-up of designers.
Each piece of RHS-endorsed fine art pottery is designed by the Moorcroft Design Studio members and is made entirely by hand in Moorcroft’s original 1913 factory in Stoke-on-Trent, using almost unchanged techniques from 1897.
Moorcroft’s latest RHS Collection, For the Love of Orchids, celebrates the first RHS Orchid Artist, Nelly Roberts. Moorcroft designer, Nicola Slaney has created five designs for the collection each with a different orchid cultivar or hybrid inspired by Nelly’s work. This includes a vase featuring an orchid with Nelly’s own name, Odontoglossum Opheron gx ‘Nelly Roberts’, now known as Oncidium Opheron gx.
