Why William Morris Would have Loved Portland

Well, lots of reasons. But here's just two:

Tile & ceramics: The Art of Daily Life. Beautiful, and sometimes droll. I covet some of these pieces.

Knitting as art and community: Stitchmarker.

I love these deliberate and humane refusals of the boundary between art and craft, beauty and use. And they're very, very Portland.
