Celebrating Clay and the Potter’s Art for 20 years
Earth and Fire – one of the country’s premiere ceramic events, takes place every year in the grounds of Rufford Abbey.
Over a hundred potters from across the UK and Europe come to sell direct to the public from outdoor market stalls in the ancient abbey ruins and courtyards.
This annual 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.
New Home… Same Quality… Same Spirit
2017 is an exciting year for Earth & Fire as we move to a fantastic new site. We are not going far – we are moving to Welbeck, home of the Harley Gallery and the Portland Collection – a beautiful site a mere 10 miles north of our old site at Rufford.
Whilst the backdrop will change, the spirit of Earth & Fire will remain the same with the hustle and bustle of the market stalls, the demonstrations and the trade stalls.
