THE COUPLING THISTLES
Designer: Vicky Lovatt
Shape: PLQ3
Limited Edition 100
Assisting with the wedding invite design for her Scottish friends, Vicky Lovatt split and paired thistle parts to create a modern, stylised design. Parts of her thistle’s rough edges have been sacrificed, and other parts magnified to assist with the smooth, amalgamation of two souls. The Coupling Thistles evolved into a Moorcroft design, which toasts a marriage with loving cups filled with reflected violets and crimsons that topple like dominos, one over another. The journey starts with two, bright green stems running like a train track, still quite separate and yet in perfect alignment before combining under the protection of gently curved green leaves pointed upwards as the complexity of a new structure reveals hidden treasures. This is a true analogy of any good marriage, where, under loving protection, time allows innate, affable qualities to be grafted from one to another, and secret charms are singled out and magnified. Under an avocado-green lens, The Coupling Thistles holds squares of symmetry and interest amid the circles of life to magnify the deep, purples of a single heart pumping with a life that can only come from something entirely unique. In design terms, this has to mean that ceramic design has been pushed forward.
