Complicated figure scenes and landscapes in painted enamels were generally reserved for the most expensive "ornaments" like vases, but transfer printed items had these.

Wedgwood is especially associated with the "dry-bodied" (unglazed) stoneware Jasperware in contrasting colours, and in particular that in "Wedgwood blue" and white, always much the most popular colours, though there are several others.Wedgwood felt the loss keenly when Bentley died in 1780.Wedgwood was also an early adopter of transfer printing, which allowed printed designs, for long only in a single colour, that were far cheaper than hand-painting, although this was still used, the two often being combined, with painted borders surrounding a printed figure scene.This was acquired in July 2015 by Fiskars, a Finnish consumer goods company.He was in partnership with the leading potter Thomas Whieldon from 1754 until 1759, when a new green ceramic glaze he had developed encouraged him to start a new business on his own.
