VQ & Emma Bridgewater
Emma Bridgewater began in 1985, after Emma tried and failed to find a birthday present for her mum. "I was looking for a really special cup and saucer, but everything was either too formal or too clunky. That was my eureka moment.
I realised there was a gap in the market for pottery that was beautiful and practical – pottery for a relaxed, colourful, mismatched life." Today the company is run by Emma and her husband Matthew Rice, and the designs come from both of them.
A thoroughly British company – all Emma Bridgewater pottery is made in Stoke-on-Trent, the traditional home of British pottery, and they’re proud to be one of the largest employers of potters in the area.
