William Frend De Morgan

De Morgan, William Frend, 1839–1917, English artist and novelist; son of Augustus De Morgan. A famous potter, he designed glass and tiles and rediscovered an old process of making colored lusterware. When he was 66 he retired from business and turned to writing novels, which were quite popular and brought him a large income. They include Joseph Vance (1906) and When Ghost Meets Ghost (1914).
