'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.

Jasper has been by far the most avidly collected of all Wedgwood wares from the 18th century until the present day. It is still the style by which the firm is throughout the world and it continues to be produced in the 1990S. A dense white stoneware, jasper was the outstanding invention of Josiah Wedgwood's career as a potter - and the most significant innovation in ceramics since the discovery of porcelain by the Chinese some 900 years earlier.
