William de Morgan 'Rudchester Lion'

Tapestry Designer: Karen Dixon

Rudchester Lion tapestry pillow "This rampant lion with encircling foliage was originally designed by William de Morgan in sepia tones. I felt, however, that using the stronger shades used by de Morgan in many of his other designs would add more of a medieval heraldic feel.
The design can be made up either square or circular, sufficient wool is provded for either. It looks stunning made up as a pillow or used as a cover for a footstool.
The original design had no name so I called it after one of the Roman forts on Hadrian's Wall in my home county of Northumberland."

Karen Dixon

The design uses Appletons Tappestry wool for a traditional look.

The worked area measures 18" x 19" (46cm x 48cm) suitable for a pillow or cushion.
