Sublime Symmetry

The Mathematics behind De Morgan’s Ceramic Designs.

Sublime Symmetry exhibition showcases the work of William De Morgan, the celebrated Victorian Arts and Crafts designer. The exhibition presents over 80 magnificent works, including ceramics from the De Morgan Collection and his designs on paper on loan from the V&A. The pieces have all been chosen to demonstrate the mathematical concepts which are the basis for his beautiful and colourful ceramic designs. Sublime Symmetry will span across three of our galleries, with additional pieces from the Leicester Museums’ collection. Children and families will be able to explore the patterns, shapes and symmetry in De Morgan’s elaborately decorated tiles and pots. Making learning maths fun, there will be interactive games and family activities for budding mathematicians young and old.
