    Edward Burch - Modeller (1730 - 1814)

    Burch was accepted into the Royal Academy schools in 1769 – the year in which Wedgwood opened his new factory at Etruria – and was elected a member two years later. In his lifetime he achieved a considerable reputation – both as a gem engraver and a modeller in wax. He supplied Wedgwood with models between 1788 and 1790, and in 1789 he produced a portrait head and shoulders of George III to celebrate the King’s temporary return to sanity. He also supplied 18 individual horse-studies – some of which were after drawings by George Stubbs.
