Here at Emma Bridgewater, they strive to create items that improve people’s day-to-day experiences.
In 1984, Emma Bridgewater was born when she was unable to locate her mother a suitable birthday present.
It all started in 1984, when Emma had recently graduated from college and was working in London. She went shopping for her mother’s birthday gift one day. The two glasses and saucers were intended to be a “I love you” gift. ‘I long for you. She wandered into a china store in search of a set that would make her feel like she was back in her mother’s North Oxford home. The Great British High Street back then seemed to only sell things that were either delicate and formal or sturdy and distinctly unromantic. Emma had an instant flashback to the cabinet in her mom’s kitchen. She pictured it in this riot of colour and mismatched ceramics at the china store. The only way to make the dream a reality was for her to learn how to create china by hand. However, she had no clue how or where to begin looking.
