Introducing my new . . .
William Morris Collection
As a long-time admirer of William Morris (1834 – 1896), the renown designer of home furnishings, I was delighted to find contemporary fabrics in some of his designs. He is generally acknowledged as the father of the Arts & Crafts movement, in America and in England, designing wallpapers, fabrics, furniture and more. More history via the link above.
Here is, perhaps, his most famous quote, which I struggle to follow. Have nothing in your house
which you do not know to be useful
or believe to be useful
~ William Morris 1880
From my new William Morris Secret Pocket Collection:
These are going to make great gifts. Midweek I just did a small, popup, fine craft boutique and these were very popular.
Friday evening, come on out and enjoy some Holiday cheer at Art Works Downtown. It's a great opportunity to do a bit of gift shopping. All the artists have gift goodies in their studios for you to enjoy and share.
