DO YOU LOVE SAILING? It is, after all, our maritime heritage that put the Great in Great Britain so it not surprising that boats feature such a lot in our Fine Art and Decorative Arts.
And the sea creatures thought up and created into Arts & Crafts pottery by William de Morgan would certainly make sailing more interesting! The appeal of lustrous glazed Art Pottery at auction has never been so great and it is William Frend De Morgan (1839-1917) who leads the way. He produced designs for the world-famous Morris & Co between 1863 and 1872 and his influences were mainly medieval Persian designs.
