RHS and its longstanding licensee, Moorcroft are continuing their successful partnership with the launch of a new pottery collection inspired by orchids.
Called For The Love of Orchids, the five pieces of art pottery showcase the work of Nelly Roberts – the first RHS orchid artist – in the year that marks the 150th anniversary of her birth.
Each piece of art pottery is made entirely by hand in the Arts and Crafts tradition and designed by Moorcroft designer Nicola Slaney.
The five pieces are The Dell (a jug), Almandin (a plaque), Vine House (a clock design), Rameses (a ginger jar) and, of course, Nelly Roberts (a vase).
The handmade designs within the collection range in price from £170 to £895. The designs are available as limited editions, numbered editions or open editions that will be discontinued when the collection closes. Heights vary from the 12-inch vase named after Nelly herself to a 9-inch jug and the demure 6-inch ginger jar.
For The Love of Orchids RHS Collection launches today (4 July) at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival.
