More Moorcroft please!
Over the summer I took a real interest in my family history, I found that most members of my family have at some point worked with pottery until the rapid decline of the industry in recent years. I visited the Moorcroft museum to find out more about the industry and was pleasantly surprised by the design of the products. It is way out of my price range but will definitely be on my wish list. My favoutirte is this piece by Kerry Goodwin depicting the Potteries in Recession. It shows a rain covered scene where the potbanks are closing, and relates closely to my families history with the industry. The colours are amazing.
