We have selected The Potteries as the world's very best website on Josiah Wedgwood.

The Potteries website is produced by Steve Birks of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, who describes his hobbies as Alto Saxophone, Whisky, Reading, Cycling, and Local History. He observes that nobody, on their deathbed, ever says 'I wish I had spent more time at the office'. The Potteries website, which is devoted to the local history of Stoke on Trent, is organised in three main sections: Pottery, History, and Photos.

The website contains a substantial section on Josiah Wedgwood. This consists of an illustrated biographical article, with embedded links to subsidiary illustrated articles on places, people, and types of pottery. The places include the main factories which Josiah Wedgwood used. The people include Wedgwood's relatives, friends and colleagues. The types of pottery described include Queen's Ware, Basalt, and Jasperware.

Other sections of the website cover: An A-Z of Ceramics, Biographies of Stoke-on-Trent People, Buildings of Stoke-on-Trent, Famous Potters Index, Index of Potworks in Stoke-on-Trent, and Industrial History of Stoke-on-Trent.
