Art Journal- William Morris

 Hey everybody!
 I'm lucky to say that inspiration is flowing for me this week! After learning more about Antonio Gaudi and studying his work, I was so energized! 

This week, I've begun to look at the father of the Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris. The Arts and Crafts movement was an international design movement popular in the late 1800s that stood for traditional craftsmanship using simple forms. Morris and his movement were a great influence to Gaudi! Morris' talents included writing and poetry, besides being an artist, designer, and textile maker. Morris' work is known to many and is still influential to art and craft all over the world.
I hope you enjoy the stones I am working on which take bits and pieces of his patterns and art. I have set the rocks on pictures of his work.
I can see that I may be stuck on this for I while!!! 
I just love it!
