New pottery range will complement the new RHS book on roses.
The Royal Horticultural Society has tapped Moorcroft to produce a line of art pottery using rose designs inspired by the RHS Lindley Library.
The RHS Rose Collection will include pottery items such as vases, coasters and plaques in various shapes. The collection will also feature six designs based on well-known roses including Marechal Niel, The Sphere, RHS Wisley, Eglantine and Scotch Rose and Rosa.
Additionally, the RHS Rose Collection was designed to complement a new RHS book–The Rose: A History of the World’s Favourite Flower in 40 Captivating Roses with Classic Texts and Rare Beautiful Prints.
“Our customer demographic–the collector who appreciates high-quality, British-made, handcrafted, fine art pottery and the botanical themes we often favor–is a great match with the demographic of the people who support the RHS,” says Elise Adams, managing director, Moorcroft. “We’ve developed a strong synergy with the RHS with our involvement in show gardens at both the RHS Tatton Flower Show and the RHS Chelsea Flower Shows and now we are honored and delighted to have the chance to play such an important role on this wonderful rose project.”
The RHS Rose Collection is now available at the Moorcroft Heritage Visitor Centre, a variety of giftware and collectible shops, as well as online at Moorcroft.com.
