Creativity in pottery

I was given a beautiful book for Christmas – about Emma Bridgewater and her pottery. I love her creative designs and colourful patterns and the book has given me wonderful insight in to the ideas and motivation behind her beautiful and practical pottery.

The world of pottery, and particularly Staffordshire pottery, is full of fascinating history and heritage, even more so now that Emma Bridgewater has made its foundations in the home of the UK pottery industry in Stoke-on-Trent.

For me, this pottery is creativity at its best – beautiful designs, familiar patterns, magnificent colours, and everyday homeware shapes.
