HISTORY OF WEDGWOOD FACTORIES


In 1906, a Wedgwood china museum was established at the Etruria pottery. A new factory was built at nearby Barlaston in 1940, and the museum was moved to and expanded at this location. The Etruria works was closed in 1950. During 1960-1970 Wedgwood acquired many English potteries, including William Adams & Sons, Coalport, Susie Cooper, Crown Staffordshire, Johnson Brothers, Mason's Ironstone, J. & G. Meakin, Midwinter Companies, Precision Studios, and Royal Tuscan. Now Wedgwood was known as The Wedgwood Group.

Wedgwood's basalt, a hard, black, stone-like material known also as Egyptian ware or basalt ware, was used for vases, candlesticks, and realistic busts of historical figures. Jasperware was his most successful innovation; it was a durable unglazed ware most characteristically blue with fine white cameo figures inspired by the ancient Roman Portland Vase. Many of the finest designs were the work of the British artist John Flaxman. The most famous artist he employed at Etruria was the sculptor John Flaxman, whose wax portraits and other relief figures he translated into jasperware.
