The ICON Ceramics and Glass Group is delighted to announce that
booking for our group's tour of The De Morgan Centre, lunch and AGM
is now open.

The tour and AGM will be held on Saturday 8 June 2013

Icon's Ceramics and Glass Group have arranged a tour of fabulous De
Morgan Centre which houses the largest collection of William De
Morgan's ceramics.

De Morgan began his career working alongside artistic contemporaries
such as William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, before opening his
own potter's studio in Chelsea.  His work is heavily inspired by the
brilliant colours of Islamic pottery, especially the bright
turquoise he first admired on Iznik work of the 16th century.

This wonderful collection was formed by Evelyn De Morgan's sister,
Mrs Wilhelmina Stirling who died aged ninety nine in 1965.  She
bequeathed her substantial art collection to be looked after in
Trust for perpetuity and the De Morgan Foundation Charity was
formally created in 1967.

The day will include a tour of the collection, lunch and AGM with a
visit to the pub after.

Cost: UKP20, open to CGG members only.
