Wedgwood Basalt Ware

Also known as Black Basalt, basalt ware is a hard black stoneware, named for the volcanic rock basalt and created by Josiah Wedgwood starting around 1768. Wedgwood's black basalt ware was much better quality than the stained earthenwarecalled "Egyptian black" produced by various Staffordshire potters of that era.

Wedgwood's basalt, was used for vases, candlesticks, and various other pottery pieces as well as real life sculptures of famous figures.

The first products included "bronze Etruscan" vases with barely discernible gilding.
Tea and coffee sets have been manufactured using black basalt, and miniature statues were cast along with busts of classical and modern philosophers and authors.
