Today we learn about the rich UK pottery heritage with a special focus on Josiah Wedgewood and his influence within the industry.

The story begins with a green, glazed jug at the centre of a family who understand that certain items hold a treasured value. Their love of pottery is clear and, from a child’s perspective the listener hears about a young man who also had a love for pottery, Josiah Wedgewood. His legacy and story inspires both the listener and the child at the centre of the story.
