Moorcroft Prestige House for an Art Lover 18/16 - Numbered

Product Description

Prestige designs are amongst the most sought after pieces to emerge from Moorcroft’s kilns, and have been ever since the first pieces were made over a century ago.  They are often pieces not only prestigious in size, but often with highly intricate, complex and captivating design subject matter.  Due to the very nature of their size, which can be up to almost 70cms in height, it can take many weeks for a single piece to be made from start to finish.

The House for an Art Lover, in Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, was designed by the famous architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife, Margaret MacDonald, in 1901. They entered a competition, set by German magazine Zeitschrift für Innendekoration, to create an architectural design for a ‘Haus eines Kunstfreundes’ or ‘Art Lover's House’. The competition stated that only “genuinely original modern designs will be considered” and that “it is permissible and even desirable that an Architect and a Decorative Artist of modern tastes develop and submit the design jointly”. This unusual rule meant that both Charles and Margaret, could work together on their submission.

Sadly, their design was disqualified due to the late entry of a number of interior views. For more than 80 years, the competition entry remained only to be found on paper, until, in 1989, the idea to finally build the House for an Art Lover took shape. Over the next seven years the house was constructed with builders working hard to achieve the “pronounced personal quality, novel and austere form and the uniform configuration of interior and exterior" that the Macintoshes’ design had been lauded for.

In 1996, House for an Art Lover opened and today visitors from around the world journey to see this modern interpretation of the Mackintoshes’ design. Designers, Emma Bossons and Kerry Goodwin, were no exception, and both were bowled over not only by the size, scale and majesty of the building itself but also by the crisp, white modern interiors and the colourful gardens that surround this historic building.

Sometimes, history repeats itself, and Moorcroft’s prestige House for an Art Lover vase sees both Emma and Kerry as joint designers, just as Charles and Margaret were 121 years ago. Kerry was the first to start work on the design, recreating the building with its numerous windows, and ornate frontice panel of two ladies carved in stone. Emma then took over the design reins, adding the flowers, Scottish thistles and blue birds, to bring colour and movement to the Mackintoshes’ architectural gem. The end result - a prestige vase that celebrates both architecture and the decorative arts in equal measure – the very thing that the original 1901 competition set out to achieve.

LET GLASGOW FLOURISH

Charles Rennie Mackintosh is Scotland’s most celebrated architect and designer of the 20th century. Together with other leading artists, such as Mackintosh’s wife, Margaret Macdonald, they transformed the decorative arts and created a distinction and recognisable ‘Glasgow Style’ of art. Mackintosh and his contemporaries left a legacy that can be discovered across the city of Glasgow to this day, not only in his hometown but also in the surrounding landscape. Moorcroft’s designers have been inspired by the world of Art Nouveau and the Glasgow style, but also by the memorising city of Glasgow itself, and its natural environs, reaching as far north as the banks of Loch Lomond.
