PatternBook - 2016
Sweet peas or morning glory twining round a mug; a gaggle of hens, a greyhound chasing a rabbit around a plate edge; Rise & Shine exhorting you to wake up with your morning coffee - everyone has their favourite Emma Bridgewater pattern. Emma's design inspirations come from everyday life. We are all making our mark as we choose the options - this dress, or that pair of shoes, what to cook, what dish to serve your food on - it's all designing and we always write in our own particular style. Ranging about through childhood memories - from the children's bookshelf filled with Maurice Sendak, Beatrix Potter and Ladybird books, to family holidays on the North Norfolk coast or in the Scottish Isles; from cosy Paisley eiderdowns to Mary Quant patent white boots and citrus mini-dresses; to rummaging through antique shops and market stalls for bright crocheted patchwork blankets, groovy 1960s coffee pots and idiosyncratic Victorian spongeware, Emma shares the process of design that brings pattern onto your kitchen table. Including over twenty of Emma's family recipes and a complete list of every Bridgewater design since 1984, Pattern is a visual and story-filled celebration of this uniquely British brand.
