Artists have been throwing, molding, and modeling ceramic pottery since the dawn of time. Ceramic pottery was so important to the ancient cultures of Egypt and Greece, that bodies were buried with them. One company that has excelled at producing vases and vessels that emulate the look of ceramic pottery from ancient Greece is Wedgwood. With its Jasperware series of ceramic pottery, Wedgwood introduced vessels whose very material is its most beautiful feature. Jasperware is made from a variety of colored clays, the most popular being a cornflower blue and white combination. These vessels are lavishly decorated in Neoclassical high-relief. Like Greek ceramics, figures are often depicted posing in a band or "register" around the vessels. But unlike their Greek counterparts, most Jasperware bodies have such a beautiful matte color that they look best without a glaze. Wedgwood's Jasperware pieces are among the most beautiful ceramic pottery works of the modern age. You can be sure to find Jasperware along with many other types of ceramic pottery from Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Moorcroft, Andrew Hull, and much more at The Premiere International Royal Doulton Event & Exposition.
