Josiah Wedgwood, founder of Wedgwood some 250 years ago, is recognized as the father of English pottery. Despite suffering knee pain from a young age, which led to the amputation of his leg later on in life, Josiah devoted himself to creating revolutionary pottery art such as Jasper and Queen's Ware. These pieces remain highly praised to this day. He also devised unprecedented marketing strategies, such as using current events and famous people, like anti-slavery activists Benjamin Franklin, Catherine the Great of Russia, and the arrival of British ships in Australia, as themes to promote his products.
