Exclusive First Look at Emma’s New Book!

Pattern & the Secrets of Lasting Design - Published on 25th February 2016



Sweet peas or morning glory twining round a mug; a gaggle of hens, a greyhound chasing a rabbit around a plate edge; Rise & Shine exhorting you to wake up with your morning coffee – everyone has their favourite Emma Bridgewater pattern.

Ranging about through childhood memories – from the children’s bookshelf filled with Maurice Sendak, Beatrix Potter and Ladybird books, to family holidays on the North Norfolk coast or in the Scottish Isles; from cosy Paisley eiderdowns to Mary Quant patent white boots and citrus mini-dresses; to rummaging through antique shops and market stalls for bright crocheted patchwork blankets, groovy 1960s coffee pots and idiosyncratic Victorian spongeware – Emma shares the process of design that brings pattern onto your kitchen table.

Including over twenty of Emma’s family recipes and a complete list of every Bridgewater design, Pattern is a visual and story-filled celebration of Emma Bridgewater’s design archive, stretching back thirty years.

Available to pre-order from emmabridgewater.co.uk from January 2016 at £20, saving you £5.
