Earth and Fire is one of the country's premiere ceramic events.
For three days in June, over a hundred potters from across the UK and Europe come to Nottinghamshire to sell direct to the public from outdoor market stalls the ancient abbey ruins and grounds.
The event attracts collectors, gallery owners, enthusiasts and the general public alike, who flock to Rufford Abbey, Nottinghamshire to meet and talk to the potters selling everything from garden planters and sculptures, to bowls, pie dishes, teapots, mugs, plates and egg cups.
Truly a celebration of clay in all its forms, the Earth and Fire also includes a programme of free demonstrations and talks, trade stands selling all things ceramic, and campus stands showcasing the next generation of potters.
Many of our regular exhibitors, who have been attending since the early days of Earth and Fire over 18 years ago, will be joining us again, including Robin Welch, Niek Hoogland, David and Margaret Frith, Richard Godfrey, Roger Cockram and John Wheeldon. They will be joined by international ‘first timers’ from South Africa, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and France.
We look forward to welcoming you to Earth and Fire to meet and buy from the very best studio potters around.
