Lady Elizabeth Templetown (1747-1823)

Elizabeth Lady Templetown was an amateur artist and sculptor, and the majority of her designs for Wedgwood were created between l783 and l789. For the most part these tended to depict figures of women and children engaged in domestic pursuits, hence the general term 'Domestic Employment' series. These designs were supplied to Wedgwood as drawings or as 'cut-Indian paper' from which William Hackwood modelled the bas-reliefs.
