Moorcroft Llandudno Goats-SOLD OUT




– Sold Out

Forming part of Moorcroft Pottery New Art of Adversity Collection Part 2. With their origins deep in the wild and rugged heart of Kashmir, the arrival of goats in the outskirts of Llandudno is a long and warm-hearted story in its own right. // Almost two centuries ago, the people of Kashmir had long since learned that wool from their goats made wonderful shawls and other soft, comfortable knitwear. The goats became fashionable presents for the rich and famous to both give and receive - with some shipped to North Wales. The goats thrived and multiplied on a diet of good Welsh bracken, gorse and coarse grass found in abundance on the rocky slopes of the Great Orme, just outside Llandudno. // For almost a century, goats and residents lived in harmony together. The goats rarely came near the town and most townsfolk had long since tired of clambering up a mountain of rock and gravel to see them. That blissful coexistence held good until the Coronavirus lockdown. The goats were curious and began to explore. Soon, they discovered the value of empty streets and the Botanical Gardens, as Llandudno’s residents stayed inside their homes, they roamed freely. Designer, Kerry Goodwin has captured this moment in history, with her usual quirky style, to make us smile and remind us how nature reclaimed much of our world when we took a step backward, and quietly watched from our windows.
