How our tiles are made: Our range of authentic victorian tiles are probably the most authentic you will find. The images original Victorian tile designs taken from the original templates. The materials and methods of production are also faithful to the originals - the original hand-formulated glazing recipes are used, and each tile is hand-painted before firing, in exactly the same way it was done over 100 years ago.


William de Morgan (1839-1917) is the most famous designer of pottery tiles of the arts and crafts movement, of which he was a founder member. He also painted in a Pre-Raphaelite style, designed stained glass, and became a novelist. He started out as a stained glass designer, and only later became a potter, experimenting with glazes and rediscovering methods of making the intense greens and blues used in Majolica wares, and using these tints in new designs. He supplied William Morris from his kiln at his home in Chelsea, London, before moving his pottery works to Merton in 1881/2 and then to Fulham in 1886. He married Evelyn Pickering, the painter, in 1887. To the proponents of Arts & Crafts Movement, the Industrial Revolution separated humans from their own creativity and individualism; the worker was a cog in the wheel of progress, living in an environment of shoddy machine-made goods, based more on ostentation than function. The Art & Craft Movement sought to re-establish the ties between beautiful work and the worker, returning to an honesty in design not to be found in mass-produced items. The movement focused on the richly detailed gothic style. Decoration often depicted medieval themes. The pottery and textile designs were intricate, colorful and realistic. While the original intent was to provide handmade goods to for the working population, the cost of paying craftsmen an honest wage resulted in higher prices than the most people could afford. This often limited the movements reach to the upper classes.
