The most comprehensive presentation to date of Wedgwood,
English purveyor of fine china, porcelain, and luxury accessories
known for its timeless, elegant, and classic designs. b>
This is the definitive book on Wedgwood, the preeminent luxury
china brand in the world and the essence of English design and
craftsmanship. Founded in 1759, Wedgwood has a deep heritage
in pottery making that represents timeless design and enduring style.
The eponymous founder, Josiah Wedgwood, was an entrepreneur
and visionary who quickly became Britain&rsquo;s most successful
ceramics pioneer, elevating pottery from a cottage craft into a luxury
good and an art form. He was the mastermind behind
Wedgwood&rsquo;s most enduring pieces, including
Queen&rsquo;s Ware, Black Basalt, and Jasperware.
That tradition of master craftsmanship and innovation continues
today as Wedgwood works with celebrated designers such as Vera
Wang and Jasper Conran.
With historic photographs, drawings,
and watercolors from Wedgwood&rsquo;s extensive archive,
which display the craftsmanship and technical innovation, this book
is a visual celebration of English design. It offers a lavish look at
some of the most timeless china creations in history with a focus on
Wedgwood&rsquo;s 100 icons, in-depth essays on the brand
and its history, and pattern books and sketches from the
Wedgwood archives. While paying homage to the pioneering
spirit of Wedgwood, this volume documents the achievements of
a brand that is a symbol of elegance and timelessness, infusing
classic craftsmanship with fresh design, and promises to impress fans
of Wedgwood, old and new.
