About William De Morgan

William De Morgan met William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones when he was 24. He became a close friend of both men, initially implementing Morris's designs for Morris & Co. in stained glass and tile. He went on to become one of the chief designers of stained glass and tile and took over the tile production for the company. His workshop supplied tile to Morris & Co. well after Morris's death in 1896.

Fantastic Bird

The Fantastic Bird color palette is what De Morgan called his Persian colors, dark blue, turquoise, manganese purple, greens, Indian red, and lemon yellow.

I have three versions of Fantastic Bird available:

  • A Limited Edition 12-tile panel on 4.25 inch ceramic tiles
  • Three- and Four- panels

    The three-tile ceramic panels are available in both 6 and 8 inch tiles (6 x 18 inches, or 8 x 24 inches).

    Tumbled marble tiles are also available in 4-inch and 6-inch only.

    The four tile panels are available on 8 x 6 inch tiles (8 x 24 inches). This is a good option if you need to increase the grout spacing slightly to fill out a space.

    How to Order Fantastic Bird Tiles

    Fantastic Bird tiles can ship pretty quickly. Limited edition takes a bit longer but in all cases you'll usually have your tiles within three weeks. See How to Order tile to tell me the size and format you want, and a little bit about your project. Don't worry if your space doesn't accommodate the exact tile sizes; we can often figure out something else without much trouble.
