A taste of Wedgwood
The story of Wedgwood dates back to 1759, when a young Josiah Wedgwood started as an independent potter in Northern England. He began exploring the many possibilities of clay, and eventually became known as the “Father of English Potters”. Jasperware was the most famous of Josiah’s inventions, an unglazed vitreous fine stoneware.
