Details

Full Fathom Five 42/12 vase is a limited edition of 50 and has been designed by Vicky Lovatt as part of Moorcroft's Shakespeare's collection.  Vicky is inspired by the second stanza of Ariel's song, where Ferdinand, the Prince of Naples, has just been washed ashore having survived a shipwreck in which his father has supposedly drowned. Before the young nobleman can catch his breath, the spirit Ariel arrives to taunt him in song. Indeed, Ariel’s song is a ruse. Alonso, Ferdinand’s father, lives, as do the crew members of his miraculously preserved ship and all its passengers. The storm has been entirely conjured up by a mischievous spirit who is woven into Vicky’s design with all the froth and bleakness of a perfect storm – so perfect, in fact, that you have to hold your breath, as you toss and turn with surging waves. The drama really does appear real in Full Fathom Five. Shakespeare, the most celebrated playwright of all time, humbles the human spirit to show that a drama can be made out of a crisis but a crisis should never be made out of a drama.
