Designer, Kerry Goodwin, has stepped back in time to create The Dog Walkers. Two fashionably-dressed Edwardian ladies grasp tightly on the leads of their dogs, the first controlling a pair of rampant greyhounds and the second a pair of well-behaved and totally unintimidated dachshunds. In whatever century you live, such encounters are familiar enough, but the Moorcroft designer has chosen to place her dogs and their two Edwardian owners in the middle of a stylised park full of swaying trees in the Moorcroft genre, a bandstand with the musicians playing with full gusto and a busy ice cream seller. Despite the drama of the confrontation, both women are reacting with plausible aplomb and dignity befitting a lady of their time.
The Dog Walkers is a design of drama drawn from a bygone age. Fashioned on the prestigious 93/20 shape (height 20”/50cm) even the sound of barks and growls is almost audible so realistic is the movement of the dogs, their keepers and the swaying parkland trees coloured in subtle shades of green. As a limited edition of only 15 pieces, The Dog Walkers is a fine piece of ceramic art worthy of the home in which it comes to rest. The colours fuse gently into each other even though the dogs and their keepers are dressed in black. In art, atmosphere is everything, and The Dog Walkers succeed in taking the viewer back in time.
