Earth and Fire International Ceramic Fair is one of UK’s most popular handmade pottery events. It takes place every year at the end of June in Welbeck, North Nottinghamshire. Welbeck Estate, houses The Harley Gallery, The Portland Collection and an array of artist studios.
Earth & Fire showcases over 135 potters from across the UK and mainland Europe who come to sell direct to the public from outdoor market stalls.
This event attracts collectors, gallery owners, enthusiasts as well as the general public. It is certainly a great opportunity to meet and talk to the potters, selling everything from decorative and functional pieces, sculptures, coffee mugs, bowls, teapots, plates and egg cups and even garden planters.
There will also be a full programme of talks and demonstrations by well known British potters. For instance, slab building with porcelain with Roger Cockram, making square vessels on the wheel by James Hake, handbuilding birds and beasts by Jennie Hale.
