Black Basalt : Black Basalt was the first ornamental ware to be developed by Josiah Wedgwood in 1768. The fine grain, rich colour and smooth texture was quickly appreciated and 1773 Wedgwood wrote 'The Blavk Basalt is Sterling and will last forever'. His predictions were correct and it has been in continuous use for over 2 centuries.
