One of Britain’s most famous luxury brands, Wedgwood was founded by Josiah Wedgwood, a craftsman, potter, pioneer and philanthropist, in Stoke-on-Trent, England in 1759. Although in recent years the company has changed hands a couple of times, the company still has its base, and a fabulous museum that is well worth a visit, in the same area, which is now known as “The Potteries”.
Still produced at Wedgwood factory in Stoke on Trent, many pieces in the Wild Strawberry collection have the intricate pattern of finely drawn leaves and small strawberries applied by hand in a process called lithography. Lithography is a highly skilled craft that can take many years to perfect, and only the most experienced craftsmen and women, some of whom have more than forty years’ experience, work on such pieces.
