Last chance: Sublime Symmetry at Guildhall Art Gallery

Join Guildhall Art Gallery as they uncover the captivating mathematics behind William De Morgan's exquisite ceramics.

11 May 2018 – 28 October 2018 | Visit website

Don't miss out on a fascinating free exhibition of the works of late Victorian ceramic designer William De Morgan. Featuring fantastical beasts, fanciful flora and fauna and innovative mathematics in hand-painted displays, this is your chance to witness the works of an artist that captivated his contemporaries.

Over his career William De Morgan revolutionised the field of ceramic design with his reinvention of lusterware, dedication to studying and perfecting Middle Eastern designs, invention and use of his own kilns and his wonderful patterns. Despite, in his time, being best known as an author, De Morgan was a talented potter and possessed great mathematical aptitude which he applied to his work.
