Lot 74MOORCROFT H 19.00 x W 14.00 x D 14.00 cm VASE (Shape No 7/7) "A CLOUDED CLEARING" (Limited Edition 40 This One Being No 13) Signed By Designer Vicky Lovatt R.R.P. £495.00.
(More commonly known for its medicinal properties, St John’s Wort often gets overlooked as a pretty little shrub with cheery yellow flowers. The blossoms last from midsummer until autumn, and they are followed by colourful berries. Vicky has coupled the vibrant pointy petals with contrasting soft muted toadstools which almost look like snow-topped mountains. The toadstools at the top are Shaggy Inkcaps which stand tall next to Clouded Agarics at the bottom of the design.).
Lot 90MOORCROFT Large 25cm BALLOON VASE (Shape No 75/10) "FERNS AND FOXGLOVES" Limited Edition 30 This One Being No 19) Signed By Designer Emma Bossons R.R.P. £545.00.
(The foxglove is one of the most familiar of our wild flowers and certainly the most distinctive. It thrives best in dappled shade and is perfectly adapted to cope in sites where light varies throughout the day, woodland areas being ideal. Ferns & Foxgloves by Emma Bossons FRSA is a celebration of woodland flora, where bold, architectural spires of foxgloves soar, bursting out at the base, where tubular flowers hang. Emma has painted the petals the colour of strawberry sorbet with delicate freckles within. Unfurling ferns are scattered amongst the flowers on the dense woodland floor.).

(Bellahouston is inspired by the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Designer Emma Bossons has adapted roses for a glorious geometrical arrangement in deep pinks and purples, with black tubelining echoing Mackintosh?s original linework. Bellahouston Park is the location of Mackintosh?s ?House for an Art Lover? in Glasgow.).
Lot 110MOORCROFT VASE IN THE SWEETNESS DESIGN By Designer Nicola Slaney.
(With their delightful wisps and tendrils, sweet peas have made a lovely floral subject at Moorcroft for decades and so their reoccurrence was inevitable. Nicola scattered a wild and unkempt cluster of the colourful annual flowers, with delicate tendrils tubelined in green, for the Moorcroft Club’s 30th anniversary in 2017. Its popularity was instant and could simply not be ignored. With connoisseurs eager for more, Sweetness makes a very welcome re-appearance in 2018. Nicola has used a pure white background to her design and as a result her sweet peas appear bright, cheerful and tempting.).
Lot 111MOORCROFT H 17.50 x W 13.50 x D 13.50 cm VASE (Shape No 63/7) "LIBRARY LIGHTS" (Limited Edition 25 Only This One Being The Actual Trial Piece) By Designer Emma Bossons FRSA FOR THE GLASGOW FOUR COLLECTION. R.R.P.295.00
(Whilst Moorcroft celebrated the launch of a new Mackintosh collection inspired by 78 Derngate, the only house in England designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, at 78 Derngate itself, the world was awoken to find that Mackintosh’s flagship building, The Glasgow School of Art, had been devastated by a second fire. The west wing of the Glasgow School of Art accommodated the school's most famous room – the Mackintosh Library – which was constructed around a complex framework of timber posts and beams influenced by traditional Japanese architecture. Prior to the horrific fire of June 2018, the library had been painstakingly renewed from American tulip wood. Described as "one of the finest rooms in Glasgow," Emma decided that she would endeavour to recreate the wonder of this room from the cluster of electric lights that cascaded from the centre of the ceiling.
Mackintosh’s use of glass blowers to create gold, pink and purple streaky glass was to mark this room’s interior design out as his masterpiece. With skilful tubelined latticework, Emma captures the raw, modern industrial-geometrics of the ceiling light’s metalwork and softens it with Mackintosh’s subtle pinks, purples and amber infills. Sky-blue arches, reminiscent of how the huge, elongated windows that straddled the two floors would have allowed the blue skies to pour into the room, allow the spirit of the room to be resurrected within her own design.).
