Heritage pottery company creates two pieces of artwork reflecting history of the station.
Heritage pottery company Moorcroft has designed and created two pieces of artwork reflecting the history of St Pancras International, as part of the station’s 150th anniversary celebrations.
The limited edition pieces are available at the station’s 150th Anniversary Store. They form part of ‘Celebrate St Pancras – the people, the place, the journey’, a series of events, exhibitions and installations commissioned by HS1 Ltd for the anniversary year.
Operating out of the original brick factory in Stoke on Trent, Moorcroft uses proprietary glazes and distinctive slip-trailing methods pioneered by William Moorcroft at the end of the 19th century.
The two pieces are St Pancras Arches of Blue, which shows the roof arches of the station and diamond shapes from the famous clock face; and The Golden Age of Steam, with the decorative plaque illustrating the style of the station’s visitors during Victorian Britain.
