LIVE: Wedgwood.

Wedgwood Visitor Centre, Stoke-on-Trent.
Admittedly I like plates more than most humans, but look at that gorgeous blue colour. These are Wedgwood jasperware! They’re completely matte and are coloured with metallic oxide; if you go round the Wedgwood museum you can see Josiah Wedgwood’s own jasper trials in various colours, from 1773-1776. The relief decorations are made in moulds as photographed above, and carefully applied by hand. Presumably super steady hands. Who needs Tiffany-blue when you’ve got Wedgwood-blue?
