A beautifully designed gift book devoted to the work of the renowned ceramics firm Wedgwood, which has thrived from 1759 to the present day.

Looking back at key moments in Wedgwood’s design history, this book celebrates the manufacturer’s visual power and great design from its founding in 1759 to the present day.

The name Wedgwood has come to stand for something far beyond its illustrious and energetic founder: it has united art and industry; introduced design and artistic collaborations; and pioneered the development of the firm’s iconic blue-and-white jasperware. This book tells that story through design, reflecting the continuing role that Wedgwood and its designers, artists, and employees have played in setting trends―including collaborations with many British artists and designers such as Christopher Dresser, Eric Ravilious, and Keith Murray. Wedgwood continuously responds to the market and produces high-quality, desirable ceramics for a broad range of consumers, yet remains faithful to the traditions established by Josiah Wedgwood in the eighteenth century.

The Wedgwood Collection highlights the company's unique business proposition of operating in both the "ornamental" and "useful" markets to attract a broad international clientele. This archive, praised by the Art Fund, is filled with over 80,000 objects that showcase the brand's artistic heritage, craft, and innovation for over 250 years.
