Current Announcements: April

April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.
~ TS Eliot, The Wasteland

I was distracted from my plans in March resulting in less progress on plans but better Acanthus and Artichoke versions, including a backsplash and border tiles. And I've started a new page for Early Art Nouveau blue and white tiles

May Morris Spring and Summer tiles and backsplash. I am very happy with how these turned out and will try to get better pictures.

There are also new bestiary tiles and some additions to Fantastic birds and beasts.

Labors of the Months undercabinet backsplash tiles.

April Plans and Beyond

I am resolved to finish some projects I've started before beginning any new ones. Yes, really. Almost in order of completeness:

Edward Burne-Jones, Cerberus, the Doorkeeper. Done.

De Morgan flock of bluebirds with dragon imposters.

Golden Lily backsplash.

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.

Web Updates

I am making the gallery, catalog, and product pages more mobile friendly, 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.



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.
