Wedgwood

Wedgwood's move into art pottery was pioneered by William Burton, who began the development of lustre glazes prior to his move to Pilkington’s Pottery in 1893. This was continued by Daisy Makeig-Jones, a local art school student who was allowed to develop her own style of decoration. Drawing on the work of distinguished artists such Arthur Rackham and H.J Ford, she introduced the Fairyland Lustre Ware and along with her “ordinary lustres” which drew their influence from the Far East was instrumental to Wedgwood’s success in the 1920s and 30s.
