Woodlodge brings timeless Victorian style to gardens with its new William Morris collection

Woodlodge, the UK’s leading supplier of garden pots, has unveiled its new collection of William Morris planters, combining classic Victorian elegance with modern ceramic style.

 

Inspired by renowned Arts and Crafts movement designer William Morris, the elegant, high-quality ceramic containers are hand finished by skilled potters, and make a stunning addition to any garden.

 

The William Morris Ceramics collection was influenced by Kelmscott Manor tile designs which have experienced a resurgence of interest due to the nation’s appetite for restoring period features in properties. Now, that timeless Victorian style can be extended from the home into the garden.

 

Featuring William Morris’s Willow Bough floral design and classic Kelmscott artwork, the collection is offered in earthy green, blue, grey and taupe hues. Sizes range from 16 to 40cm in diameter, perfectly complementing a wide range of plants – from formal box topiary to summer-flowering shrubs and houseplants.

 

Kelmscott Manor was Morris’s rural Oxfordshire retreat in the 1870s and much of the inspiration for his textiles and artwork came from the property’s architecture, craftsmanship and gardens – renowned for their roses and orchards. Morris’s timeless designs, incorporated into the new collection of planters, make a sophisticated feature, whether they’re adorning the grand formal entrance of a rolling country estate, or the patio of a small town garden.

 

Michael Wooldridge, Director of Woodlodge said: “We are delighted to add the iconic designs of William Morris to the Woodlodge collection. Renowned for his outstanding decorative work, William Morris emphasised craftsmanship and attention to every detail, making it the perfect fit for our latest range.”

 

Every purchase of a planter from the William Morris collection will help to support exhibitions, events and educational projects at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, London – Morris’s former family home and now the only public museum devoted to the life and legacy of the iconic designer and craftsman.

 

The William Morris collection has a recommended retail price ranging from £7.99 to £34.99, dependant on planter size, and is available now at all good garden centres.
