"The Potter's Hand" is much more than a historic telling of the great Josiah Wedgwood's life. What Wilson does particularly impressively is to put Wedgwood's achievement and works into the context of the politics and social philosophy of the times between the two great revolutions in American and France.

The result is a novel of ideas ranging from colonialism, slavery, the welfare of workers, class, religious belief, industrialization and, with Charles Darwin's lecherous old grandfather as the family doctor, early thoughts on evolution.
