William de Morgan 'Rudchester Lion'
Tapestry Designer: Karen Dixon
||"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."
The design uses Appletons Tappestry wool for a
The worked area measures 18" x
19" (46cm x 48cm) suitable for a pillow or cushion.
