The Moorcroft pottery line was started by William Moorcroft when he was hired to work for the pottery manufacturer James Macintyre & Company Limited in 1897. Soon, he was in charge of the company's art pottery studio, mainly due to his innovation and skills as a maker of earthenware. Once put in charge, his first release, Florian Ware, gained great acceptance and won him an award for his efforts in 1904. Resentment grew between the employer and the master craftsman during the following years, and his studio was closed down in 1912. Undeterred by this setback, Moorcroft set up his own company and was soon producing pottery once again. To this day, Moorcroft pottery, especially the brand's vases, can be found in the collections of many art lovers around the world.
