  • Josiah Wedgwood, The Genius

    Historian and author AN Wilson explores the life of his great hero, Josiah Wedgwood. As one of the founding fathers of the Industrial Revolution, Wegdwood was a self-made, self-educated creative giant, whose other achievements might be better known if he wasn't so celebrated for his pottery.

  • Robert Copeland on Spode
    With the passing of Robert Copeland in September of 2010, the Transferware Collectors Club's production of the DVD Robert Copeland on Spode, completed just two years earlier in September of 2008, becomes a particularly important way to retain Robert's insightful comments on the Pottery Industry and the key roll Spode played in the development of underglaze printed wares and England's own version of fine porcelain: bone china.  Interviewed by ceramics scholar Deborah Skinner and captured on DVD at Chester University, England,  Robert discusses a variety of key topics related to the Spode family of potters, their products, and the times in which they prospered. Read more.

    then stained red or green and, when projected, gave a reasonable colour effect. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xY6iHx_07tk
