Mai Morris (1862-1938), the youngest daughter of William Morris, was a very original designer and a prisoner of the British Arts and Crafts Movement. Specializing in embroidery, some of the most important textiles are designed at Morris & Co.
, And its customers are as far away as Australia and the United States. Overwhelmed by her long-known father, whose work was often attributed to her, since then, Mai has contributed to the continued popularity of Morris' designs.
May was one of the pioneers of the "EmbroideryArt" pioneer and helped raise her profile from amateur hobby to serious chase requiring skills in design, coloring and technique. Her ideas were published through publications, lectures and teaching in many leading artistic schools, influencing a generation of students in London, Birmingham and Manchester.
This book and accompanying exhibition at the William Morris Gallery, Walthamstu, cover a whole range of Mai Maurice works, ranging from water colors and designs to exquisite embellishments, book covers, fashion and jewelry. Offers a new vision of life and personal relationships in May, her social activism and her efforts to support other professional women who have sought to earn their living as artists and designers..
