Earthenware Bust of John Wesley, Staffordshire, England

Earthenware bust of John Wesley (1703-1791) wearing a black cassock and white clerical collar, mounted on a square base with leaf pattern. John Wesley, the founder of the non-conformist Methodist movement in the Church of England. He is thought to have visited Cornwall 33 times, between 1743 and his death in 1791. Wesleys practice of preaching outdoors, in barns and cottages was well suited to Cornwalls rural geography where many villages were isolated from the parish church. Large crowds were drawn to open air meetings in places such as Gwennap Pit, where Wesley preached eighteen times. The bust was manufactured in Staffordshire and measures 24.5 cm high

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an exquisite Earthenware Bust of John Wesley, a prominent figure in the non-conformist Methodist movement within the Church of England. The bust, crafted in Staffordshire, England, portrays Wesley wearing a dignified black cassock and a pristine white clerical collar. Resting on a square base adorned with delicate leaf patterns, this remarkable piece stands at 24.5 cm high. John Wesley's profound impact on Cornwall is evident through his numerous visits to the region between 1743 and his passing in 1791 - an impressive total of 33 times. His unconventional practice of preaching outdoors resonated deeply with Cornwall's rural landscape, where many villages were geographically isolated from their parish churches. Notably, large crowds flocked to open-air gatherings like Gwennap Pit to hear Wesley deliver his sermons; he graced this sacred place with his presence eighteen times. The ceramic craftsmanship beautifully captures Wesley's countenance and serves as a testament to his influential role as both preacher and religious leader. This stunning depiction highlights the significance of Methodism within Cornish culture and history
