The Wonderlust collection is inspired by our rich heritage and inspiring archive. Our talented in-house designers, at our home in Barlaston, take great joy in exploring the old pattern books, and breathing new life into classic patterns, motifs and elements.
But now, as we introduce new pieces to the Wedgwood story, we take a deeper dive into the history of the Waterlily pattern, along with the shapes and silhouettes that feature heavily in the Wonderlust collection.
Not only did our designers draw inspiration from the archive to create this eye-catching pattern, they also explored Wedgwood’s design history for shape.
The new Waterlily teapot features a distinctive shape which has appeared along the Wedgwood journey in various forms. In the late 18th century, a teapot similar in shape with the recognisable spout, wide body and handle, was crafted in cane ware.
The patterns from the Wonderlust collection have been thoughtfully developed by our experienced in-house designer, Gwyn.
A designer at Wedgwood for ten years, Gwyn is passionate about illustrating the strong bond to our heritage in new and curious designs, by taking inspiration from modern design as well as the rich Wedgwood archive.
