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.
