Earth & Fire 2017

23,24, & 25June

Home2 SC Stephen Parry and Fritz Rossman

Earth and Fire International Ceramic Fair is one of the country's premier ceramic events taking place every year in the grounds of Rufford Abbey in North Nottinghamshire.


For over twenty years, selected potters from across the UK and mainland Europe have come to sell direct to the public from outdoor market stalls in the ancient abbey ruins and courtyards.


The event attracts collectors, gallery owners, enthusiasts and the general public alike, who flock to Rufford to meet and talk to the potters selling everything from garden planters and sculptures, to bowls, pie dishes, teapots, mugs, plates and egg cups.

The potters came.... the visitors came .... the pots glistened in the sunshine and went to away to new homes to be admired and treasured.


We all had a ball, we were so lucky with the weather, whilst all around us suffered torrential rain we managed to miss it all until a shower when everyone was driving away. You can plan most things but the British weather continues to be beyond control.


The demonstrations were instructive and the potters' games were mayhem and all is as it should be in the potting world.


A Big Thank You to.....

...all the potters and visitors who made the journey, our wonderful volunteers Marike & Stuart and my great team who made the event such a joyous occasion.


See you all next year!
