Art in Clay Hatfield 16-18 August 2019

Art in Clay is a show that needs no introduction to anyone who is serious about pottery, ceramics and clay!

Celebrating 25 years in 2019, this show is now one of the most important ceramic events in Europe.

Art in Clay showcases some of the finest ceramics currently being made by individual potters in the UK and continental Europe. This outdoor summer event is held in marquees in the beautiful parklands of Hatfield House. Over 200 exhibitors will be showing and selling their work, many also doing talks and demonstrations.

Art in Clay brings a huge variety of styles and techniques. You will be able to admire and buy functional and decorative pottery, dinnerware, sculpture, garden pieces. The aim of the event is to bring a wide range of ceramics to wider audience, members of public as well as known collectors. The exhibitors include leading national and international makers as well as relative newcomers and imaginative students. If you are a potter, there is also a selection of trade stands. Therefore you will be able to stock up on books, tools, glazes or even wheels and kilns.

This year will be the third time I’m exhibiting at Hatfield and I will be delighted to bring my new collection of work.

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.
