I add new tile designs less frequently during tile season.
Several new tiles added to Victorian Blue and White tiles

Ongoing additions to the bestiary:
Brought back Limited Edition murals to Tres Riches Heures Labors of the Months tile set (12 months, 6 tiles).
Monoceros Star Map backsplash. Beware of unicorns in the sky.
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.)
Philip Web and De Morgan Whorls and Swirls.
Victorian tea room tiles.
Accent tiles to accompany the Monoceros Star Map backsplash.
Legend of Good Wimmen.
Victorian Botanicals and Geometrics, if there's interest.
Baths (two new)
Kitchens (three new)
Fireplaces (three new)
Stairs and Accents (one new)
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.

I say to you that earth and heaven are not two but one; and this one is that which ye know, and are each one of you a part of.... unless ye slay it. ~William Morris, A Dream of John Ball
