Wedgwood China

The English brand Wedgwood is renowned worldwide for its incredibly beautiful bone china. Wedgwood’s unique, original, and premium products captivate hearts permanently.

The English royal family and other monarchs, including Russian Empress Catherine II, once used Wedgwood porcelain tableware. Today, lovers of beautiful dishes can purchase sets and individual pieces from this renowned factory in various countries.

Wedgwood China Company Since 1759

The Wedgwood factory is a national pride of the United Kingdom. Founded in 1759, it gained the status of royal supplier by 1765. Over the past two centuries, the brand has been admired by prominent world leaders, from Catherine the Great to Theodore Roosevelt.

Josiah Wedgwood, the founder and a hereditary potter, invented unique ceramic compositions and innovative porcelain processing methods. To master these technologies, all Wedgwood artisans undergo 10 years of training.

The production of porcelain at Wedgwood combines craftsmanship, centuries-old heritage, elegant beauty, unique technologies, and innovative developments.

These qualities have made Wedgwood a leader not only in the UK but also worldwide. The English factory Wedgwood has been one of the most renowned porcelain manufacturers in the world for over 260 years, known for its impeccable quality and diverse designs.

Wedgwood Jasperware

Another significant professional achievement for the hereditary potter came in 1775 with the invention of “jasperware,” a ceramic material named for its resemblance to the durable natural stone.

Josiah Wedgwood valued this creation above all his other achievements. Jasperware became an ideal medium for applying portraits or classical white reliefs made from the same material. It was used to create cameos, vases, candlesticks, figurines, tea sets, and even frames and flower pots.

However, Wedgwood offered not only miniature items but also large plaques for interior decoration. Many experts consider the discovery of this material’s formula a milestone in ceramic production, second only to the Chinese invention of porcelain. Jasperware pieces are uniform in color throughout, even when broken. Wedgwood described it as a “white porcelain biscuit of elegant beauty and delicacy.”

The ceramist was proud of this material, as he achieved it only after many long and unsuccessful attempts. Today, as in the 18th century, the color palette of jasperware is diverse. It includes several shades: blue, gray, grayish-blue, lilac, yellow, green, dark red, black, and brown.

Where is Wedgwood China Made?

Wedgwood China like jasperware is made in England using traditional techniques and proven materials. Skilled craftsmen from the village of Barlaston continue to create captivating masterpieces.

Each dish or cup made from fine porcelain requires 36 hours of work by four people, and the entire process—from a shapeless piece of clay to the enamel coating—takes over three days.

The most fascinating aspect of this legendary tableware is the artwork:

  • The images are applied using lithographic printing, meticulously transferred onto the piece before firing.
  • Further decoration is done by hand. Liquid gold is used to create reliefs, along with paints in various shades and enamel coatings.
  • The most renowned themes include garlands of foliage, floral patterns, and mythical creatures.

Wedgwood China: One of the Best British China Brands

Today, as always, Wedgwood tableware is distinguished by its unique design. The brand regularly collaborates with renowned designers and other brands. Among the most notable collaborations are those with Vera Wang, Jasper Conran, and The Royal Mint.

You can choose English Wedgwood porcelain from the Vera Wang wedding collection, as well as elegant tableware by J. Conran, decorated with platinum accents. Fans of themed decor will surely appreciate Wedgwood’s Christmas-themed porcelain.

None of the items in these refined collections can be called outdated or mediocre. By combining respect for the past with a bold vision for the future, the manufacturer finds the delicate balance between daring and elegance.

The primary material in the hands of English artisans is elegant bone china. Bone ash is added to the mix for strength, allowing the pieces to be fired at lower temperatures.

The result is light, delicate, yet remarkably strong items with a milky, almost translucent hue. Thanks to their resistance to chipping and impact, all porcelain collections are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.
