Tile in the William Morris and De Morgan Tradition

Tile in the tradition of English Arts & Crafts, also known as the decorative wing of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.

If I were asked to say what is at once the most important production of Art and the thing most to be longed for, I should answer, A beautiful House. ~William Morris

Current Announcements: June

In June, I'll add some early Art Nouveau and maybe some Jugendstil (German Art Nouveau) individual tiles, as well as catch up on some earlier plans. Simply put: Early Art Nouveau is flowery and asymmetrical; later Art Nouveau has a distinct Asian influence. As always, these overlap. See my article, William De Morgan: From Arts & Crafts to Art Nouveau.

Art Nouveau grew out of the Morris Arts & Crafts movement and took hold in the 1890s, at a time when Morris's artist attentions had shifted to Kelmscott Press. (see the Kelmscott Chaucer tiles.)

Web Updates

I am making the gallery, catalog, and product pages more mobile friendly as I go along, including a font change so there may be some moments of "What was she thinking?" Several pages have been done. For mobile users, the descriptions should appear closer to the images and be less confusion.

Notifications

I don't send notification emails because people get enough impersonal emails.

If I have your mailing address, I will send an occasional postcard featuring a tile with an interesting backstory. I intend that these will be pretty enough for bookmarks and not make their way immediately to a landfill.

You can get updates on featured tiles at William Morris Tile as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
