Made by Daisy Makeig Jones (1881-1945) for Wedgwood, c. 1920’s
 
Susannah Margaretta ‘Daisy’ Makeig-Jones was born in 1881 in a small mining village near Rotherham, where her father was a GP. She joined Wedgwood as a trainee in 1909 at which time the factory was no longer as successful or considered so innovative as it once had been.
 
She was promoted to lead designer in 1914, and in due course, Makeig-Jones brought fresh life to Wedgwood with her marvellous glazes and whimsical designs; her innovative wares, particularly her 'fairlyland lustre' series, soon gained a huge following.
 
In 2015, a major exhibition of Makeig-Jones' work called 'Casting a Spell: Ceramics by Daisy Makeig-Jones' was held at The National Museum of Women in the Arts, New York. For more information, visit the NMWA website.
