A little information:
Josiah Wedgwood 1730 - 1795 - English potter, whose works are among the finest examples of ceramic art. Wedgwood was born in Burslem, Staffordshire, on July 12th, 1730, into a family with a long tradition as potters. At the age of nine, after the death of his father, he worked in his family's pottery. In 1759, he set up his own pottery works in Burslem. In 1768 he built a village near Stoke-on-Trent for his workforce, which he named Etruria, and a second factory equipped with tools and ovens of his own design. During his long career, Wedgwood developed revolutionary ceramic materials, notably basalt and jasperware.
