Wedgwood

The most important English pottery, founded in Staffordshire in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood. The term is most often applied to Jasper ware which was the fine-grained, unglazed stoneware featuring a decoration in white relief, applied to a coloured background. These plaques, cameos, portrait medallions and vases were imitated all over the world.
