 A new display at the De Morgan Centre focuses on Iznik ceramics and their influence on  William De Morgan and 19th Century design. 

 This display of Iznik-inspired ceramics from our collections includes some pieces that have  never been display. The Carnation and saz leaf vase (left) from William's Sands End pottery  was badly damaged; it underwent conservation in 2011 and is now on display for the very first time.

 

 

We have also been able to display some of the larger single tiles in our collection, showing how De Morgan's designs formed larger patterns. The lotus flower and saz leaf tiles shown here are based on a late 16th-Century design which was found in the mosque of Eyyup on the Golden Horn (Istanbul). 

 

Visit the De Morgan Centre to see these wonderful pieces alongside William's ruby lustreware and Evelyn De Morgan's stunning symbolist paintings.
The Iznik-focused display forms part of our permanent gallery and can be seen from March onwards.
