PATTERN AND THE SECRETS OF LASTING DESIGN


PATTERN AND THE SECRETS OF LASTING DESIGN

EMMA BRIDGEWATER    Book Number: 89612    Product format: Paperback

The inside story of Emma Bridgewater's beloved pottery and homeware designs. Emma established her successful business in 1985 producing a range of mugs, jugs and teapots inspired by traditional shapes and spongeware designs. Her patterns are as quintessentially British as marmalade on toast and have made her distinctive homewares bestsellers across the world. She recalls the genesis of her iconic spongeware patterns, from multi-coloured polka dots to leaping rabbits. Well written, revealing and charming, the patterns in this book are largely Emma's own with her meandering reveries elevating this book from a mere catalogue of designs to something of a memoir. Her inspiration is often deeply personal - a plate of her mother's or a favourite children's book - as she tells the stories of each pattern's creation and reveals the intricate processes of research and collaboration behind the familiar designs. 232pp, 32 pages of colour photos.
