Vintage STONEBRIDGE Stoneware Dragon Teapot MINT

Stonebridge Pottery was founded in 1976 and closed in 2007, the last-surviving purveyor of the sprig ware craft developed by Josiah Wedgwood. This art form involves hand carving and embossing an already created piece of pottery such as a tankard or coffee mug. The sprig is the medallion that is placed over the pottery form. While it may look simple to the untrained eye, the process from start to finish is complex and has many steps. Most crucial is the waxing method used to obtain glaze all around the medallion but not over it. Without proper experience, many pieces can be lost when the clay is wet as the area with the medallion is heavier than other areas and can cave in. Custom pieces have been done for customers such as Higgins Armory Museum, Scotland Yard, Buckingham Palace and American author Patricia Cornwell
