No pattern should be without some sort of meaning. ~William Morris
William Morris's design for Lily and Pomegranate (see) shows a complex background pattern. When this design was transferred to a wood block for wallpaper and fabric printing, the pattern was represented by dots suggesting "snow". In the reproduction version of this tile, I felt the dots were too stylized for the intent of the tile, and tried to stay closer to the original design.
This tile is seamless on the horizontal.
