William De Morgan Crocodile Tile

This tile was designed in 1879 and is available in green, red, manganese and blue colours as well as a East (A) and West (B) version. The animal is outlined onto an engobe and decorated using individual brush strokes, thereby resulting in a very stylised unique character.

Price listed is per one tile and includes VAT.

Animal Tiles (with background)
Whereas De Morgan’s flowery images are reminiscent of William Morris’s floral designs the animal designs are distinctly his own. They are partly drawn from his detailed knowledge of medieval illustrated manuscripts and partly from his vivid imagination. These fantastic imaginary creatures are outlined onto an engobe and decorated using individual brush strokes before being bathed in an overglaze giving character and life.

Each tile measures at 6″ x 6″ (152mm x 152mm) x 8mm thick. Ideal for general wall use, or as fireplace tiles.

william-demorganWilliam De Morgan (1839-1917) was one of the most famous designers of tiles from the Arts and Crafts Movement, of which he was a founder member. He painted in a Pre-Raphaelite style, designed stained glass and became a novelist.

He began his career as a stained glass designer, and only later became a potter, supplying William Morris from his home in Chelsea, London. He then moved to a pottery works to Merton in 1881/2 and then to Fulham in 1886. He married Evelyn Pickering, the Pre-Raphaelite painter, in 1887.

During the Fulham period De Morgan experimented with glazes and rediscovered methods of making the intense greens and blues used in Majolica wares. He used these techniques in his own designs and became famous for his complex lusters and deep, intense underglaze painting. In 1907 William De Morgan left the pottery works and continued his life as a successful novelist.
