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 present one day. Two matching cups and saucers were on her wish list as a way to express her affection. ‘I long for you. She wandered into a china shop in search of a set that would make her feel like she was back in her mother’s North Oxford home. There were just two types of products available on the British high street back then: either delicate and formal or sturdy and rather unromantic. Emma had a quick mental image of her mother’s dresser in the dining room. She pictured it in this riot of colour and mismatched ceramics in the china shop. The only way to make her dream a reality was for her to learn how to produce porcelain by hand. She had no idea where to begin or how to get there.
She decided to go to Stoke-on-Trent after a friend casually suggested it. That’s how the iconic modern pottery label Emma Bridgewater was started. In the thirty years since that first spark of inspiration, they have never wavered from their commitment to the importance of perfecting their planning and execution. They believe that their everyday kitchen china is at the very centre of their lives and that each cup, bowl, jug, and plate contains their individual tales, reflects their collective experiences, and enlivens them as they eat and drink together. Each creation begins as a heartfelt emotional reaction to some aspect of the world that they adore. But it’s only when you enjoy it too that they know they’ve succeeded. Recently, they’ve branched out into other areas outside of ceramics. Now they have their own line of candles and home scents in addition to their designs on glass, tins, picnicware, stationery, wallpaper, and fabrics. Emma’s internal dialogue with her mother from 1984 continues. Only now, they’re hoping, are you included as well.
