My father was a great entrepreneur and was always creating fantastical objects to promote his latest project. Just before he passed away he asked me to produce a tile with his favourite piece of poetry as a gift for every member of the family. Needless to say he always had fantastical ideas about how I might promote my work, I always listened and nodded enthusiastically and never took action but before he passed I wanted to show him that I had finally listened. So while designing his tile I made my own tile and this was the result. It was such a joy to design as I am a mega fan of William De Morgan and his ceramic tiles. Like my dad I too have fantastical ideas, I keep meaning to design a series of tiles inspired by The Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice in Postman's Park in the City of London.
