Both David & Margaret make pots that are firmly rooted in the Anglo Oriental Tradition of thrown and reduction fired stoneware and porcelain. A significant influence on them both has been the pots, teaching and their friendship with the late and sadly missed Derek Emms. David enrolled on to the North Staffordshire Technical College pottery course to be tutored by Derek after previously attending Wimbledon School of Art and Margaret enrolled a short time later after first working with Leo Matthews at Bolton Art School. Leo Matthews had trained with Derek Emms.

This (2013) year David & Margaret have had a major retrospective celebrating 50 years of making pots. The exhibition was at the Ruthin Craft Centre, Ruthin, North Wales.

A 72 page catalogue illustrated with great images of their work and studio was produced to accompany their exhibition. The catalogue is available direct from the Ruthin Craft Centre, copies also can also be obtained from David & Margaret Frith.
