    Rosso antico

     

    Rosso antico (literally antique red) is a stoneware ceramic body developed by Josiah Wedgwood I during the mid-to-late 1760s.  Wedgwood took his inspiration from the traditional red colour clay ware produced in the Potteries area during the 17th and 18th century.  However, he brought it to a degree of perfection not known before and utilised in the production of many decorative as well as useful items.
