William Morris Orange Tree Decorative Terracotta Wall Tile
Beautiful decorative wall tile using words from the poet Joyce Kilmer (1888-1918) who wrote “Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree” - the words became something of a rallying cry for the twenty first century’s Green Movement. These words remind us that for all humanity's amazing technological advancements, Nature is the all-important force we must re-learn to protect and conserve. The image of a simple fruit tree is based on a tapestry design - “The Orange Tree” - produced by Morris & Co in the late 19th century. This decorative tile, with its thought provoking message, makes a good present for William Morris admirers, spiritual folk, gardeners and those who care about our planet.
The tile measures 10.2 cm x 10.2 cm and has two fixing holes on either side just under the top two flowers.
These tiles are hand made in Somerset using clay from Stoke-On-Trent.
These frost resistant decorative pieces can be used as wall decor in many different situations in the home and garden: on a mantle piece or beam, on or over a door, kitchen splash back, in a porch, conservatory, gardens, gate/gate post, built into risers of steps or patio/courtyard wall, just to name a few.
