    Susannah Margaretta "Daisy" Makeig-Jones was a pottery designer for Wedgwood. She is best known for her range of "Fairyland Lustre" pottery.The daughter of a doctor, she was born in Rotherham. After her family moved to Torquay she entered the Torquay School of Art. She joined Wedgwood in 1909, after gaining an introduction to the managing director Cecil Wedgwood through a relative. Both of Cecil's daughters married brothers of hers. According to factory history, Daisy was asked to leave Wedgwood in 1930. She refused to go, maintaining she was part of the family. She left of her own accord not long afterwards making the dramatic gesture of smashing her pots as she went!
