The most famous and prized of all Josiah Wedgwood's inventions is jasperware, which has been produced for more than 200 years. Available in a variety of colors, the unglazed vitreous body of jasperware provides the perfect background for various classic scenes in bas-relief. Its name derives from the fact that the material resembles the natural stone jasper.
Emphasizing Wedgwood's attention to the finest details, commitment to superior quality and presentation, jasperware was originally developed in the 1770s and continues to be a favorite with collectors worldwide. There were thousands of recorded trials, hopes raised and dashed, before Wedgwood was pleased with his new finely-grained stoneware. Jasperware is capable of "receiving colors through its whole surface, in a manner which no other body, ancient or modern has been known to do". Wedgwood felt it was one of his greatest achievements. Subtle and sophisticated, the Wedgwood jasperware collection features a specially polished matte finish to give a finer texture to the surface. Wedgwood jasperware offers extensive gifting and collecting choices, as well as the liberty to enhance a home with classic pieces that are beautiful and useful.
