Moorcroft Prestige The Way of the Warrior Vase

2016 Catalogue

Designer: Paul Hilditch

Numbered Edition

 

Dimensions: H 37.00 x W 18.00 x D 18.00 cm 

Kyoto (1995) from Moorcroft’s Senior Designer, Rachel Bishop, and Geisha (2008) by Paul Hilditch created benchmarks of oriental design excellence, and set a path many feared to tread. 2016, witnesses Paul Hilditch striding forward into new design territory, where colour, design sophistication, and incredible tubelined detail, all come together in a trail-blazing finale. Featuring Japan’s revered Edo Period (1603 -1867) three Samurai stand proud against differing foregrounds framed in maple trees, with the attire of each one and stance telling a story of the code of bushido, The Way of The Warrior.

Under a blood-red moon, the first Samurai wanders bravely into a clearing, leaving behind him a flotilla of warships languishing in the bay complete with patriotic flags and whispering tales of battles ahead. His look is thoughtful and posture, determined. Perhaps on a scouting mission, his gloved hand grasps one of the two swords in his obi (belt) and he strives forward as the undergrowth rustles ahead. Impressively, the second Samurai is mounted on a stout and powerful white horse of obvious pedigree. With a saddle lined in shining gold, and a sword poised on his left side to draw with deathly speed, a blue silk and armoured kamishimo create an adrenalin-filled flamboyant war panoply.

As the vase is turned another 120 degrees, you can almost hear bush warblers twittering frantically as the last Samurai makes his grand entrance. Standing assertively with chin raised, and hands resting on his side to create an aura of utter confidence, this loyal and respectful servant of a feudal Lord, champions the legend of the Samurai. Impressively, the warrior’s immaculately fitted attire shouts self discipline, and his colourful red, embroidered kamishimo, and Kabuto helmet, commands attention and secures his status as he visually embodies The Way of The Warrior.
