Wedgwood facts:

  • Jasperware was first developed by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s.  With its distinctive matt finish and cameo reliefs in white, with the most common and best known being the Wedgwood Blue, makes this one of the most easily recognisable designs by the potter.
  • Although antique Wedgwood pieces are now highly collectable, Josiah Wedgwood is credited with the industrialisation of the manufacture of pottery.  Wedgwood also mastered the art of segmenting his target audience by selling his expensive pieces to the nobility, whilst also making cheaper sets to market to the rest of society.
  • Josiah Wedgwood was an abolitionist, and is also the grandfather of Charles Darwin!
