The Bedford Park Society is promoting this online talk by Sarah Hardy, the De Morgan Foundation’s Curator-Manager. She will explore William De Morgan’s life and career as well as the Arts and Crafts tiles he designed for Bedford Park.De Morgan was the premier ceramic designer of the Arts and Crafts movement. He began his artistic career at the Royal Academy, before meeting William Morris and embarking on design, first with stained glass and then ceramics. One of his earliest commissions was from architect Richard Norman Shaw for Bedford Park, and his tiles can still be found in houses and the Tabard pub today.
The talk including questions will last an hour.
