Kerry started her career at Moorcroft as a prolific designer in 2000. Fourteen years later, that is still the case. For 2014, Kerry has created a generous selection of superb designs for collectors worldwide. From the colourful and detailed character of her nautical scenes, Whitby and Dover, to the more serene designs of Gentian and Tail Dance, she harnesses a clever grasp on all the elements that characterize a good design and a successful limited edition.
This year, we also see an interesting range called The Hamlet which echoes the style of Art Nouveau movement with curving trees on a celadon body, flooded in the deepest, hypnotic blues and purples.
Kerry’s other 2014 range, The Honeysuckle Collection, is made up of four ginger jars capturing, in some way or another, the variegated blossoms of the honeysuckle family. Each piece in the collection represents a country or region, and therefore evokes different colours and different species of honeysuckle.
Kerry often takes inspiration from distant shores and this year her exotic design, The Floating Market, takes inspiration from the visual chaos of Thailand’s canals where local traders fill up their boats with cargo for sale. Colourful and pictorial, The Floating Market is set to be highly sought-after.
Kerry’s designs often reflect her vibrant and warm character, yet they continue to surprise us year after year.
