William Freund De Morgan met William Morris in 1863, when he was 24. They shared a love of medieval themes and fairy tales, and the natural world. He began his crafts work by designing stained glass for Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co, where he worked until 1872. His florals show Morris's influence but his fantastic creatures and fish reflect his many collaborations with Edward Burne-Jones.

William De Morgan Fish Tiles Set of 3, with infinite repeat

De Morgan made these fish in his "Persian" color palette. The blue is a Persian blue. These fish are available in two variations: symmetrical and seamless. The symmetrical fish panels with reversed panels is shown below. The seamless verision, shown above, allows an infinite repeat without reversing.
