Summary

William De Morgan designed and manufactured ceramics from 1870 to 1907, and lifelong friendships with William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones placed him at the heart of the Arts and Crafts revolution. After designing stained glass for William Morris, De Morgan set up his own pottery works. His personal vision was for intense underglaze colours and shimmering lustres to show off his designs of fabulous animals, rich florals, and flowing Persian curves. De Morgan was unquestionably the Arts and Crafts Movement's most important potter. Today his work is part of some of the world's major art collections. This is the only book available that looks at the man and his works.

Author Biography

The authors have been passionate about the Arts and Crafts movement for over thirty years; Chris as a young collector appeared with Paul Atterbury on the BBC Antiques Roadshow in the 1980's, while Rob saved his pocket money to spend at the Moorcroft factory in Stoke on Trent, when pre-war seconds were being cleared out in the 1970's. Their passion for William De Morgan and contacts with other collectors has allowed them access to many designs that have not previously been illustrated.
