History

Creamware is the name given to a type of earthenware pottery which is made from white clays from Dorset and Devonshire combined with an amount of calcined flint.

Creamware was first produced in England some time before 1740. Foremost of the pioneers of creamware in the Staffordshire Potteries was Thomas Whieldon. He produced a wide variety of creamware. The young Josiah Wedgwood was in partnership with Thomas Whieldon from 1754-1759, and when Wedgwood left to set up his own business, he immediately directed his efforts to the development of creamware. Many of the Staffordshire Potteries learned from Whieldon and Wedgwood and developed their own excellent creamware products.
