Building a timeless brand, with Emma Bridgewater, founder of Emma Bridgewater Ceramics

Emma Bridgewater is known best for her iconic style, mixing Britishness & wittiness with beautiful homeware and china.

In this episode Holly hears from Emma about how she built her iconic brand over the last 35 years, creating lasting designs, and reviving an industry in Stoke.

With a turn over of over £20 million a year, Holly and Emma explore life as a female entrepreneur in a male dominated industry, discuss their approach to ‘mother’s guilt’ and the strong role family plays within business.

From sharing thoughts on the lifespan of a product, to discussing the impact her own beloved mother had on her career, this episode is a rare glimpse into Emma Bridgewater and her iconic brand.
