'Jasper' refers to the highly distinctive blue-and-white wares that have been produced by the Wedgwood company for more than two centuries. It was arguably Josiah Wedgwood's most important contribution to ceramic art and was a direct result of several thousand experiments over many years. It has been by far the most widely collected of all Wedgwood products, and this book will explore the history and stories behind this unique ware.
Gaye Blake Roberts is Director of the award-winning Wedgwood Museum in Stoke-on-Trent and has been involved with the curation of Wedgwood's collections since 1979. She is the author of numerous books and articles, including Masons: The First Two Hundred Years, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
