Jasperware – Magnolia Blossom
Nothing says Wedgwood more than blue and white Jasperware. The color combination is iconic and quintessentially British, making the Magnolia Blossom collection a timeless treasure. Designed and hand-crafted in Britain, the exquisitely sculpted white petals of the noble flowering magnolia tree unfurl over the unique texture of blue Jasper, fresher than a spring morning sky over Tokyo.
The Wedgwood story began in 1759 when Josiah Wedgwood I started as an independent potter in Burslem, England. He was a tireless innovator, experimenting with materials and techniques; many of the materials he invented, such as Jasper, Queen’s Ware and Black Basalt, are used to this day. Engine turning, first used in the 18th Century and still used today, is a highly accurate process that creates both low relief fluting and precision colour revealing.
Collaborating for the future
Wedgwood is investing in the Staffordshire region, working in partnership with other pottery companies to rejuvenate the industry and ensure skills and talent are not lost within the local community. The site redevelopment is a great opportunity for Wedgwood to show its support for British creative talent and share the collaborative values and entrepreneurial spirit of founder Josiah Wedgwood.
