Daisy Makeig-Jones is perhaps best known for her Fairyland Lustre wares, lavishly-decorated pieces which depicted fantastical scenes of her own imagination. Technically difficult to produce, these exquisite works of art were afforded by the wealthy and appreciated by all. Wedgwood Fairyland Lustres’ whimsical, and often absurd scenes, provided an escape for a consumer class in the throes of World War I. Upon closer inspection of this bowl in the ‘Castle on a Road’ pattern, it is easy to understand how one can find themself lost in Makeig-Jones’s designs.
