William De Morgan Persian Fish Bowls.

William De Morgan Fish Bowl Panels

The De Morgan Fish Bowls complement the Persian Fish Frieze:

William De Morgan Persian Fish Frieze

They're seamless in seamless in both directions, so they'll work equally well as a fireplace surround, as well as a one- or two-row border. Some nice folks in Maine want to use Persian Fish Frieze across the top of their fireplace and the Fish Bowls and the side panels. I hope to post pictures when I get them.

Tiles I've Been Putting Off

It's tile season so I haven't made as muich progress on these projects as I would have liked.

Thistle again

I'll also add a Thistle to California native wildflowers.


I've started work on nests, kitchen herbs, and possibly fish. Kitchen herbs are probably more important but I am enjoying the nests. Meanwhile, do see the Ladies' Flower Garden of Ornamental Annuals

Web Updates

I have moved to a more secure server which seems to be quite a bit faster as well. I think everything is working as it should, but if you run into difficulty and have a moment, please tell me so I can fix it.


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.

I say to you that earth and heaven are not two but one; and this one is that which ye know,
and are each one of you a part of.... unless ye slay it.
~William Morris, A Dream of John Ball

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. ~William Morris
