Vivien Moir. Folky ceramics with style.

August 13, 2011

As an illustration graduate from the Duncan of Jordanstone University in Dundee, the ceramic work of

Vivien Moir I feel, has a definite nod to the traditional Staffordshire Figures made in the 1800’s.

Her work is obviously more contemporary, folky even as it often has text and is more likely to be

blue and white rather than the often gaudy and multi-coloured work produced some 200 years earlier.

There is humour here too and a stoic feel to her busty ladies, with painted titles like ‘Ever Onwards’ and

‘Queen of the Garden’, we can see themes which repeat themselves involving both nature and animals.

Her work is very reasonably priced at just £35 for a plate above and available from the Just Art Gallery.

Grab yourself a bargain before she’s selling for much higher prices.

We’d love to see more of Viviens’ work and more information about the maker herself too.

      Hi there. Many thanks for your comment but you’ll need to contact the maker directly. I’m just the person who wrote about her. Cheers Craig
