Jo has researched and reproduced some of William DeMorgan's beautiful tile designs. William Frend DeMorgan (1839-1917) was one of the most important potters of the late nineteenth century. He was active in the Arts and Crafts Movement in England and specialized in designing ceramic tiles. In 1898, he started a ceramic factory called Sand's End Pottery in London to produce vessels and tiles designed by himself and other artists. He created hundreds of designs using many colorful glazes.

Jo has recreated some of these tile designs while using her carving technique. She also uses colorful glazes that are lead-free and safe for food use.
