Undoubtedly the most intriguing and inventive ceramic artist of the Victorian period, William De Morgan (1839-1917) fascinated his contemporaries with fantastical beasts and fanciful flora.
Behind his beautiful designs, however, was an impressive understanding of mathematical principles.
Celebrating the opening of our new exhibition featuring over 70 stunning tiles, plates and vases, De Morgan Foundation Curator Sarah Hardy asks you to look closer at the celebrated artist’s elaborate ceramics to see his rigid use of geometry in preparing the designs.
Join us for this fascinating talk on 15th June, 2pm.
