I just need some time in a beautiful place to clear my head. ~William Morris
The first Morris tiles were produced for Red House, the home he built along the path the Canterbury Pilgrims would have walked. Morris hand-painted them himself. When, after an evening of wine and conversation, they decided to form Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co., tiles were offered along with stained glass, home furnishings, and textiles. After a few years, William De Morgan joined the firm. A renowed ceramic artist to this day, he was first in charge of 'The Firm's' stained glass production but took a strong interest in ceramics and ultimately took over the production of ceramics. Eventually, he started his own pottery firm, providing tiles to Morris & Co. and eventually to others as well as commissions such as Leighton House and P&O shipping.
