Master potter Josiah Wedgwood created two sets for the Empress, the "Husk" service and the "Frog" service.

The Husk service had a pink pattern with flower sprays and festoon borders.

The encaustic designs were painted on the basalt surface with a brush, and the colours – blue, green, pink, orange and white – were more varied than the simple reds and blacks of the ancient vases they were meant to imitate.

Encaustic wares – both ornamental and useful – were very popular.

By September 1767 his experiments were at an advanced stage, ready for production, and less than twelve months later black basalt wares were on the market.
