The Potter In Our Family

This year marks 30 years of Emma Bridgewater pottery. Born in 1905, my maternal Great-Grandpa William Thawley was a potter for the Staffordshire Pottery industry for decades. Fascinating, that most of the Emma Bridgewater pottery is still made by hand and individually painted so no two pieces are the same.

How very neat! It is always interesting to see what the undertakings of our ancestors were, isn't it? Love reading your family history posts!
