World Famous Art Pottery Comes To Geelong

The artists and designers of world famous heritage pottery; Moorcroft, were so enamoured by Australia’s wonders, that they created ‘Icons of Australia’, a collection of limited edition pottery. It is tipped to be one of the finest Moorcroft collections ever, and includes designs featuring our much loved Lyrebird, stylised in Art Nouveau form, Swan River Myrtles, holding tiny flaming-pink petals that burst into life like fireworks in Moorcroft’s vibrant glazes, Numbats, Tasmanian Tigers, the Great Murray River and much more…

This August, Moorcroft Chairman and author of a trilogy of hard-backed books about the darling of the British arts (under pseudo name, Fraser Street); Hugh Edwards, will take the collection on a Grand Tour around the country, and, fortunately, there is a tour stop in Geelong. 

On Friday 18 August, 4-7pm Hugh Edwards will present a lecture, sign both books and the wonderful Moorcroft vases on offer. Spaces are strictly limited, so do be quick to book your space along with pre-ordering, on this limited release. For bookings, orders or general enquiries regarding this event, please email or call Yvonne Little at Fyans Cottage. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet one of the legends of the Applied Arts, a man with a passion and vision to bring the natural world alive in the ceramics idiom. Each piece of Moorcroft is crafted by hand using liquid clay to create a raised design outline before being hand painted. If you are ever to visit Moorcroft, the Heritage Visitor Centre and Museum (which show the history of surface design and shape over the last hundred years) all located in England, you will  view a wonderful array of craft techniques established as long ago as the 17th century which are still alive and kicking. Without question, these are the treasures of the future.
