William De Morgan Art Nouveau Lotus and Water Lilies

William De Morgan Single Lotus

The water-lily, in the midst of waters, opens its leaves and expands its petals, at the first pattering of the shower, and rejoices in the rain-drops with a quicker sympathy than the packed shrubs in the sandy desert. ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge


Arts & Crafts Meets Early Art Nouveau

Waterlily and Lotus comes from a later De Morgan design. This tile has the Persian colors he loved, but his style has grown more stylized, even fanciful, and is more consistent with his early Art Nouveau style than his Arts & Crafts designs, such as the Persian Fish Frieze tiles.

About the Waterlily and Lotus Tiles

Waterlily and Lotus is available in two variation, a single Lotus and both Waterlily and Lotus together. In addition, Lotus is available as a single 6x3 border tile.

Fireplace Problems

I've made Waterlilies and Lotus in several sizes. The standard 4.25 and 6-inch square tile both work as an accent or border tiles, and places where you have limited height. The fireplace header (between the mantel and firebox) he 6 x 8 inch tiles can help you fill in that extra space. The actual dimensions of the floral design are the same for both tiles, so it is possible to use both in fireplace surround.
