'Published in conjunction with the 250th anniversary of Wedgwood's birth and a Jubilee international loan exhibition of objects made before 1800, this volume constitutes an imaginative textual and visual history of English ceramic production in one of its most creative periods.  It is a story which extends as far as the enterprising skills of Wedgwood himself and his partner Thomas Bentley - to North America, the continent of Europe, Australia, even to China, the first home of porcelain production.'
