Shower and Bath Installations

Customer Installation Photos

I am sure there are things that can't be cured by a good bath but I can't think of one. ~Sylvia Plath

Membland Accent Tiles: Brooklyn, NY

Membland Accent Tiles over sink in Brooklyn, New York

Membland accent tiles. This is a great way to use Membland, when there is not room for a backsplash or the full mural. This bathroom was designed by Barbara Cannizzaro (Josephine Design) of Belle Harbor, NY.

Membland was a collaboration between William Morris and William De Morgan. It is also available as:

a full mural,

fireplace tiles, and

borders and backsplash tiles,

as well as accent tiles.

The evolution of the tile-making process for Membland itself is also quite interesting.

Carta Marina: Washington, DC

Carta Marina shower

The Carta Marina sea monster map shown here is 4 feet by 3 feet. Individual monsters were made larger on individual accent tiles and these placed on the adjoining walls in this many-angled Victorian bath. The blue color is truer in the accent tiles; the mural was taken in lower light to offset the glare.

The Carta Marina was created in Rome between 1527-1539 by Olaus Magnus of Sweden. From the 17th through most of the 19th century, its existence was widely considered a rumor. In 1886, the news of a remaining copy found in Munich spread quickly through Europe. More information and closeups: Carta Marina Tiles.

De Morgan Fish Frieze: Carlisle, MA

William De Morgan Persian Fish Frieze

These De Morgan fish are installed in a Carlisle, Massachusetts bath. These fish are available in two variations: The base pattern and extended set for an infinite repeat.

In the installation photo, the customer chose to use the base pattern, with panels reversed for symmetry. The seamless verision allows an infinite repeat without reversing. William De Morgan Fish Tiles.

Briar Rose and Willow Bath, Chicago, IL

Briar Rose and Willow bath

These Briar Rose Tiles are installed in a home in Chicago. Through the owner, curator of the Glessner House museum in Chicago, I learned that historic homes are no accident; John Glessner wrote an enchanting story about the constructon,furnishing and decoration of Glessner House. Like Red House, Glessner House is an intentionally unconventional home born of dynamic relationship between architect and owners. The decorative arts need not be an afterthought. If you have a restoration project, or are just interested in cultural heritage homes, you will like this interview that covers not only the design, but restoration, including its William Morris "Kennet" draperies and portieres.
