In Honor, Reverance & Remembrance

May we all remember those who have given their lives on our behalf..
for our freedom to speak, our freedom to believe, our freedom to be who we are...
May our hearts never forget and be forever grateful for the sacrifice of our loved ones,
Not only on this special day, for eternity..

Moorcroft Pottery Update!

Update!  We had a great day with Robert drooling all over the newest Moorcroft designs.  He also brought one of Britains leading photo mags with full photo coverage of the royal wedding. Some great photos not seen by any of us.  Word has it that the Royal Wedding commemorative Moorcroft vase has been one of the best selling pieces in Moorcroft's history. It is a beautiful piece.  For those collectors that were unable to attend, touch base with us here in the Museum for your copy of the 2011 catalogue. 

Robert hates having his picture taken!
Can you tell?

A Royal Wedding
Commemorative Moorcroft vase

Moorcroft's Robert Townsend will be joining us here in the Heritage Museum on Wednesday, May 11th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Stop by for complimentary refreshments and an opportunity to see Moorcroft's newest designs and special limited editions. Robert will be here to answer your questions and explain the inspirations of the newest pieces.

We have always enjoyed Robert's visits. It is much like Christmas as he slowly opens his huge travel case and gently unwraps each treasure, one by one.  It has been actually breathtaking as the wrapping comes off.  Moorcroft catalogues, as hard as they try, do not do justice to the vivid colors or artistic details of these stunning pieces of art pottery.  They are a must see.

We will be offering a 15% discount on any prepaid orders on new designs made with Robert on that Wednesday as well as a 20% savings on the limited edition Obsession piece while supply lasts, pictured above. So do not miss your opportunity to see the beauty first hand, get all your questions answered by the pro and add to your collection.

Will you join us?
