Emma Bridgewater Black Toast Cheese Straws & Biscuits
This chic and sharply graphic collection in two-tone black and cream is good for a country kitchen or Hackney flat. There is a shiny black biscuit barrel with finely hatched text and a long cream cracker tin temptingly decorated with the words cheese straws, what a pity Matthew’s is full of felt pens.
Emma says “These are some of the most desirable things we've done for years. The cream on black shows off Matthews rather elaborate calligraphy and the whole range has a special glamour. Our kitchen is already fitted out ...."
Matthew says “I am never bored with lettering, particularly with the endlessly imaginative way that masons carving monuments in the eighteenth century tumble and cram letters together when they run out of space. There is a funny irony in using those tricks on a passport holder or a pencil box. My favourite letter is the ampersand, that curly whirly combination of E and T that stands for AND in typography. It allows most opportunities for experiments and can fill almost any space, a good reason to use it wherever possible”
