Enoch Wood
Biography: Enoch Wood was apprenticed with Wedgwood for a time and later with Humphrey Palmer. By 1783 he was established in Burslem as an independent potter in partnership with his cousin Ralph Wood, and in 1790 he entered a partnership with James Caldwell and the firm became Wood & Caldwell. In 1818, Enoch Wood continued alone, under the name Enoch Wood & Sons. The firm made all the wares that were manufactured in Staffordshire at the time, including black basaltes, jasper, and probably porcelain. Large quantities of blue-printed earthenware were produced, much of which was exported to the United States. The Wood factory closed in 1846.
