William Morris Society

My work for the Storybox Collective exhibition at the William Morris Society centred around May Morris. Though a pivotal part of the Morris legacy, both in a professional and private sense, her father’s phenomenal success has overshadowed May’s own significant achievements and her influence on the design landscape within the UK has not brought her the renown she deserves.

My lamp design brings together three portraits of May with my reworkings of seven of her designs. It has been digitally printed onto fabric and then stretched around the shade frame and really comes to life when the lamp is on.
