At age 26 Emma Bridgewater began making sponge-painted ceramics, inspired by the china on the dresser in her mother’s kitchen. 30 years later, her husband Matthew Rice runs the business with her and their pottery in Stoke-on-Trent produces beautiful pieces decorated by hand. Designs include the original Polka Dot, Toast & Marmalade; Fish and the delightful A Year in the Country. A display of Emma Bridgewater pottery, however mixed, will always work as a whole.

Throughout her career, Orla Kiely has remained inspired by the Irish landscape she grew up in, and also the bright colours of her mother’s 1970’s Formica kitchen – olive green with a bright orange ceiling! She studied at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and completed a master’s degree at the Royal College of Art in London. Her bold patterns have been applied to everything from ceramics to bicycles and her Multi Stem pattern is universally recognised.

Sophie Allport graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Graphic Art & Design and worked in London before opening her own business, back home in Lincolnshire. The local landscape inspires her work; mossy greens and slate blues make her collections restful and easy to live with. Sophie has depicted hares, ducks, chickens and owls as well as more exotic flamingos and fish. Recently she introduced the enchanting Artichoke design, inspired by kitchen gardens.
