Spellbinding Charm by Nicola Slaney of Moorcroft


Spellbinding Charm by Nicola Slaney of Moorcroft our Mother’s Day design for 2023, a Limited Edition design of just 25 pieces on the 80/9 shape by designer Nicola Slaney.

Wild alpine snowbells, Soldanella alpine, are a wonder to see.  They often grow in surprisingly large clumps for such a tiny floral treasure.  They appear in early spring, pushing through the snow that can sweep the UK even in late March when Mother’s Day arrives, struggling to bloom but persevering to bring us their spellbinding charm.  They are members of the Primula family and wherever they grow, their flowering is something of an event as their finely fringed fairy bells open in shades of pink, mauve and lilac.  Designer Nicola Slaney, a mother to three daughters herself, chose this design to celebrate Mother’s Day as their symbolic meanings encompass affection, constancy and everlasting love – three traits that are at the forefront of our minds, especially on Mother’s Day.
