Emma Bridgewater is a brand that captures the imagination. It features iconic designs based on simple, uncomplicated elegance that are fresh and original, yet true classics as the same time.
Established in Stoke over 25 years ago, Emma’s thirst for creative design has led to an expansion from her range of pottery to a huge variety of different products, all of which are intended for everyday use.
The company was born in 1985 when Emma, seeking a simple cup and saucer, found the options lacking. The choice seemed to be either much-too-formal fine bone china, or clunky earthenware. It was the need for a middle ground that propelled Emma to create her own range: practical and reliable pottery but with a colourful and stylish design worthy of any kitchen.
Working together with her husband, Matthew Rice, Emma Bridgewater has created a multitude of recognisable designs, from the Black Toast range to the Polka Dot and Starry Skies ranges, all of them as collectable as each other.
