  1. Emma Britton Q&A

    Leave a Comment

    The team at ProWare first met Emma Britton at the Spirit of Christmas at London Olympia and were wowed by her beautiful and innovative designs. From glassware and mirrors to napkins and splashbacks, Emma’s collection has something for every home.

    With individually crafted and bespoke creations, Emma’s products are sure to give any kitchen a beautiful finishing touch. Intrigued by how Emma got started, we sat down and asked her more about it…


    1.Tell us more about yourself/brand?

    I am a decorative glass designer, meaning I put pattern onto glass. I launched my business, Emma Britton Decorative Glass Designer, back in 2010, and came up with an idea of putting repeated pattern onto glass splashbacks that wasn’t available at the time. I had a background in textile design but had worked in the glass industry, so my niche came from the marriage of these two areas of expertise.

    2. What makes your splashbacks so special?

    They are original and very much designed to bring joy or to complete an interior space. I personally oversee every project from design, to making and fitting. Each home and customer is unique so I work with clients to realise what they would like and help to solve their design dilemmas. My glass splashbacks are pretty yet practical, designed to last, suitable to use behind all kinds of hobs and cookers. Customers can either choose from one of my collections or commission a bespoke design – we have different price points depending on your budget. 

    3. Talk about your signature design style…

    My work has a strong British aesthetic, it’s bold, confident and often colourful with a hint of nostalgia, mostly floral, and always inspired by suburbia and the way we decorate our homes. I paint all my designs by hand. My pieces are always practical though, and designed with modern living and entertaining in mind. In my spare time I love to be a hostess and really enjoy decorating my Edwardian home.

    4. You also design for glassware…tell us more

    I’ve been designing patterns for glassware since 2015. I wanted to expand my offering and it felt like a natural synergy to the splashbacks as its still pattern on glass. During the pandemic we bought all our glassware decoration in-house, something I am incredibly proud of and now decorate everything in small batches in my Derbyshire studio. I launched new designs at this point; my pretty etched Silver Birch Collection with dainty, dappled leaves and it has really taken off. I think people like to use nice things everyday, it just elevates the everyday, from a nice glass of water to a pretty glass of wine on the sofa and with friends. 

    What is your favourite dish to cook at home?

    I really like to make a vegetarian version using quorn mince of coochinando’s Pasta Al Forna. It takes about two hours to make, so I usually do it on a Saturday afternoon when I can relax and enjoy the cooking process. I make a huge dish, or two at a time, so I can freeze some portions and also enjoy it the next day when it tastes even better! https://coochinando.com/recipes/pasta-al-forno-oven-pasta-bake/
