Moorcroft Pottery is all about stories and dreams - an art pottery now more than a hundred years old, fiercely independent, small and almost alone in its pursuit of quality at the highest level of the applied arts. The talented artists of the Moorcroft Design Studio draw inspiration everywhere from nature to Shakespeare. Combined with the consummate skills of a dedicated workforce of artists and craftsmen, this team produces some of the most beautiful pottery on earth.
Moorcroft Pottery is one of the last remaining independent art potteries in the world today and still operates out of the original brick factory in Stoke-on-Trent, England, using the proprietary glazes and distinctive slip-trailing design methods pioneered by William Moorcroft at the end of the 19th century. This incredibly labor-intensive process produces designs of intricacy, brilliance, and clarity.
Moorcroft Pottery has been esteemed since its inception in 1897 and is collected by connoisseurs worldwide. Christie’s auction house holds a dedicated Moorcroft sale each year, and Sotheby’s regularly features Moorcroft pottery in their sales of decorative arts.
