William De Morgan Collection

To celebrate the 180th anniversary of the birth of English potter, tile designer and novelist, William De Morgan, Moorcroft have created some remarkable tributes to this pioneer of Victorian design. De Morgan’s ceramic designs of strange beasts propelled him into the Arts and Crafts movement. The first president of the London Mathematical Society, De Morgan inherited a very structured mind. He is to be applauded for resurrecting 16th Century Iznik style Islamic tiles into digestible images for the Victorian hearth – allowing intense cobalt blues and Arabesque imagery into the home.
