DE MORGAN CARNATION MIRROR.
It is said that De Morgan found the repetition of modern design somewhat tedious and that he set himself the task of pattern duplicating without losing the individuality of each tile. Unfortunately, insufficient plans and drawings have survived to give some clue as to how he began to solve the pattern conundrum - without such a record his expertise still baffles even skilled observers. Reminiscent of such tiles, a little piece of Victorian Britain can be found in this design by Nicola Slaney, with De Morgan inspired florals.
The first piece created was the coral carnation plaque which led the Moorcroft designer on to pursue a De Morgan floral collection.
