March 16 – December 31, 2014
Josiah Wedgwood, one of the most remarkable men of his century, transformed British pottery from a cottage craft to a manufacturing industry with worldwide exports. At the heart of his achievement was his pioneering recognition that quality art and design would give Wedgwood wares their distinction. Henry Plant purchased a unique 54-inch swan floor vase by Wedgwood and displayed it for the enjoyment of his guests at the Tampa Bay Hotel.
Visitors will view 57 pieces of Wedgwood from the Museum’s collection plus several dozen from community lenders.
