William De Morgan Fantastic Ducks

William De Morgan Indigo Duck Tiles

During his Merton Abbey and Fulham periods, De Morgan created many tiles with fantastic creatures, such as his Fantastic Bird panel. I especially like the Fantastic Ducks because, while being characteristic of De Morgan and early English Arts & Crafts, they work very well in American Arts & Crafts (Craftsman) style homes.

The Ducks were done on six-inch squares during De Morgan's Fulham period. Their process is relatively unique for Fulham tiles. For a decade, De Morgan and his wife would winter in Florence, Italy, due to health concerns. De Morgan continued to design tiles and would have his new tile patterns painted onto paper locally, then sent to London and transferred onto the tiles. The indigo ducks, however, were stenciled, probably done as a cost-saving measure, but with excellent effect. A double application of glaze resulted in their darker necklaces.
