It was thirty years ago this month that Emma Bridgewater made her first mugs. After trying to find a birthday present for her mum and discovering that no one was making what she wanted. 50 million mugs later you will spot her name in cheery English kitchens across the land. Her style? Beautiful, practical pottery for a relaxed, colourful, mismatched life.
Toast & Marmalade is one of her most iconic patterns, launched in 1992 on just five shapes, now there are more than 50 and they are still adding more…
My favourite are these cute little monochrome ceramic bottles. Perfect for a single stem. Cluster a few together for a gorgeous display on a windowsill, dining table or mantlepiece. Love!
