ARTS & CRAFTS COLLECTION
"Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies for instance…"
– John Ruskin (1819-1900)
Grandfather of the Arts and Crafts Movement
Christ Church Meadows in Oxford. Bells toll in the distance as you stroll along the tree-lined road past grazing cattle. To the Thames, where a centuries-old boat house perches on the river's edge under the swaying boughs of a giant willow. A dragonfly whizzes past.
One of life's perfect pictures.
We'd like to add dragonflies and willow trees to Ruskin's list.
Willow, inspired by John Ruskin, William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement.
Dragonfly, our toast to Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Art Nouveau style that followed.
