Feels like home
Emma Bridgewater grew up in Oxford, where her mother's welcoming kitchen was dominated by a scrubbed pine kitchen table and a big dresser covered in colourful, mismatched china. Emma's father started, built up and eventually sold a publishing business; this gave Emma an insight into entrepreneurial life.
Emma graduated from London University with a degree in English Literature. Both Emma and her husband Matthew are very proud of the fact that all their pottery is made by hand in a Victorian factory in Staffordshire, where they have bucked the trend for the decline in the potteries in Stoke-on Trent. The early family life which inspired the Emma Bridgewater business took place round the kitchen table, and that is still the focus of Emma and Matthew's life with their four children today.
