WIND RUNNER
Designer: Emma Bossons
Shape: 620/9
Limited Edition 100
Greyhounds are often said to have their origins in the wind. After all, they have been bred to hunt for thousands of years by outrunning their prey. Reaching up to 45mph, the swift hound hunts by sight, not scent, so their natural instinct is to chase. Wind Runner captures the essence of a greyhound as sleek, elongated bodies with velvety coats and pressed down ears, circle a small bowl in clouds of dust which swirl up against a smoky, grey-green ground. Momentarily, you are part of the pack, and your surroundings blur and fade away. All distractions are blocked as a surge of adrenalin propels you with swift agility around the bend. Inside the entire length of the rim of the bowl too, the hounds tear pell-mell in full circle like Olympic cyclists in the velodrome. Only a designer of Bossons calibre is able to lose background detail to gain the raison d’etre of these magnificent hounds as they thrust, push and force themselves forward with every ounce of their being.
As a point of historic interest, this exciting limited edition also boasts another allure. It is the first time this shape steps forward as a demure 9- inch version of a hugely successful prestige bowl. Indeed, as greyhounds bow their heads to streamline their bodies into one flat, continuous line of darting perfection, it is hard to imagine just how such a design could work on any other Moorcroft shape. A perfect marriage of surface design, colour and form allows Wind Runner to hold the highest pedigree.
