POIGNANT ESSAY FROM 2009 ON THE WEDGWOOD DEMISE
Recently this essay was sent to me by my great Wedgwood pal Adele Barnett, power behind the Wedgwood Society of Washington, DC. It illustrates a very personal view of the modern era at Wedgwood & Sons by A. N. Wilson, the son of Norman Wilson, whom we have seen writing a novel more recently, and which you will see reviewed if you scroll down to older posts. Luckily, Wedgwood has survived and seems to be growing, with new markets opening up all the time, recently in Lebanon, and growing markets in the Orient. Please go here to read this heart-rending story of life in and around The Potteries from one who lived it for many years and eloquently retells the story of his life as it relates to pots, potting and potters.
