John Henry Dearle (1859–1932) began his 54 years of employment with Morris & Co working in the firm's Oxford Street shop. William Morris took Dearle under his wing and trained him to work as his tapestry assistant where he created 30 patterns for wallpaper and 40 for textiles, which included the famous Golden Lily, Seaweed, Compton, Sweet Briar, Anemone, Artichoke, and Daffodil designs.
Spring steps forward in the dark ground of Compton’s Midnight tapestry to create a vision of Dearle’s other daffodils designs. Golden, sprightly daffodils toss their heads and dance with foliage of minty, blue-green tinged with raspberry and doused in honey-coloured hues, as they weave and curl like tails of a comet. To make her design utterly unique, Nicola uses contrasting sprigs of tiny forget-me-knots, like blue stars in a galaxy, the largest and hottest stars of them all, to set Spring ablaze.
