Take a journey through time with new Wonderlust patterns.
Sapphire Garden from past to present
A nod to delicate blooms drawn many years ago, this new Wonderlust pattern builds on the floral foundation to now include curious creatures and a bold backdrop of colour.
All great ideas start somewhere, and Sapphire Garden’s journey began in the late 1820s when these flowers were first sketched.
From the creative minds of the past to the design and imagination of the present.

Water Lily from past to present
It is thought the inspiration for the pattern came from John Wedgwood, Josiah’s eldest son. John was particularly interested in horticulture and was one of the founding members of the Horticultural Society (later the RHS).
The original pattern is sometimes referred to as “Darwin Water Lily”, with Susannah Darwin (Josiah’s eldest child and the mother of Charles Darwin) being gifted it for her wedding day by her brothers.
Today it has been developed in colour as part of our new Wonderlust collection – a wonderful nod to the past, with a modern, creative and eclectic Wedgwood twist. The colours reflect the wonderful horticultural inspiration, while the crane adds an element of curiousity and wonder to the pattern.

About the designerThese Wonderlust patterns have been carefully developed by our experienced in-house designer, Gwyn.
Having been at Wedgwood for over ten years, Gwyn is passionate about illustrating the strong bond to our Wedgwood heritage in new and curious patterns. Taking inspiration from the Wedgwood archive, these thoughtful patterns have been developed to perfectly merge the original artistic drawings and new curious ideas, borne out of her imagination.
Hand-drawn with care and consideration, these little worlds of wonder conjure a feeling of discovery, so that every time you see the pattern, something new and wonderful appears to make your acquaintance.
