In 1774, Josiah Wedgwood, master craftsman possessed with a burning scientific vision, embarked upon the thousand piece Frog Service for Catherine the Great. At the same time, Josiah’s nephew Tom travelled to America to buy clay from the Cherokee for this exquisite china. A novel of epic scope, rich in warmth, intellect and humanity, The Potter’s Hand explores the lives and loves of one of Britain’s greatest families, the Wedgwoods, whose travails are both ordinary – births, deaths, marriages, opium addiction, depression – and utterly extraordinary.
