Background of Wedgwood Creamware

Creamware is cream-colored, refined earthenware. It was created in the mid-1700s by the potters of Staffordshire, England. Foremost of the pioneers of creamware was Thomas Whieldon. He invented a wide variety of decorations for creamware. The young Josiah Wedgwood was in partnership with Thomas Whieldon from 1754 to 1759. When Wedgwood left to set up his own business, he immediately directed his efforts to develop creamware.
