In her Champagne Anemones Plaque Moorcroft Pottery designer Nicola Slaney raises a glass to Caroline Applebee’s champagne-pink winter anemones with a design combining their form and colour with contrasting blue anemones. Her inspiration, Applebee’s watercolour Winter anemone (1818) depicts delicately painted, saucer-shaped pink flowers on tall, slender, branched stems with a blush-pink colour fusion. It is pity that this artwork did not receive publication during her lifetime.

To create Nicola’s soft lilac-blue hues, careful mixing of oxides and colour trials were required. Anyone witnessing Moorcroft artists applying colour to unfired clay will know that there are multiple layers of metallic oxides in these ‘blue’ anemones. Indeed, Moorcroft’s artists were keen to ensure that these flowers are more violet than blue in accordance with Nicola’s directions. Nicola likes to think that Caroline Applebee would have been proud to see her anemones flourish with another colour variant to create a feast for the eyes in fired earth.
