Pattern & the Secrets of Lasting Design

Pattern & the Secrets of Lasting Design

"Creativity, collaboration, inspiration."

The back cover of Pattern & the Secrets of Lasting Design reads,“Emma Bridgewater’s patterns are as quintessentially British as marmalade on toast.” And we couldn’t love her distinctive pottery more!

Pattern is part history, part autobiography, part cookbook—and a wholly inspirational behind-the-scenes exploration of how Emma creates her iconic spongeware. Accompanied by vibrant, color photography (and a few scrummy recipes!), she fills the pages of this book with stories of what sparked some of her favorite spongeware patterns.

Emma’s creative life with her husband, Matthew, her children, and her friends is evident throughout her joyful patterns—everything from a sister’s dress, to beloved children’s books, to everyday kitchen utensils, to flowers from a car window can become a pattern on her pottery!

Emma fans, art lovers, and creamware collectors alike will love this exploration of Emma Bridgewater’s intricate processes of research, collaboration, and creation.

Pattern & the Secrets of Lasting Design by Emma Bridgewater; Hardcover, 288 pages.
