Moorcroft Fossil

Moorcroft Fossil

Fossil Collection

Pushing the boundaries of experimentation with Moorcroft’s raw ingredients, Alicia designed four fossil patterns, each suggestive of impressions on the surface of the clay. A clever but light application of metallic oxide colour highlights peaks and troughs in the surface, thereby supporting the archaic appearance of the individual fossils. Alicia has included a trilobite, an ammonite, a carbon film of a leaf and a limulus. Each plaque is surrounded in a soft, earthy-coloured mount and framed in wood.
