Explore the hidden mathematical beauty of Victorian ceramic designer William De Morgan’s intricate design. Sublime Symmetry is an exhibition featuring 60 pots, tiles and vases from the De Morgan Collection, including examples of De Morgan’s Middle Eastern-inspired designs and glistening lustreware.

De  Morgan is celebrated for his contribution to the Arts & Crafts movement and his inventive design. His earlier work was influenced by William Morris. De Morgan’s recognisable motifs include detailed animal designs and ceramics influenced by Iznik and Islamic art. Sublime Symmetry looks beyond the glazed surface of De Morgan’s ceramics to the mathematical principles underpinning colourful and elaborate designs.

Included with house admission. Members go free. Concessions available.
