William Morris


Counted Cross Stitch Designer: William Morris

William Morris (1834-1896) was born in Walthamstow, Essex, England. In 1853 he went to Oxford University, and during the next few years he would meet many of the men who would prove to be the most influential in his life. They included the architect Philip Webb, designer of Red House, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who was the leading figure in the newly formed Pre-Raphaelite Movement and later the lover of Morris' wife Jane, and the artist Edward Burne-Jones who would remain a life-long friend.
In 1861 he founded Morris and Co., commissioning many of his friends to design furniture, ceramics and stained glass. He personally produced over 150 designs for the company, mostly textiles and wallpaper. Morris did not, however, confine himself to the decorative arts, being a vigorous political activist for socialist policies, a poet, and founder of the Kelmscott Press which most notably produced a magnificent edition of Chaucer.
