Saturday 4th October – Sunday 11th October

OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday 4th October 12.00pm – 4.00pm

In 2013 David and Margaret Frith celebrated 50 years of making pots. The culmination of their 50th year potting and working together was a major exhibition at Ruthin Craft Centre, The Centre for Applied Arts, Ruthin, North Wales. This is their first exhibition since Ruthin. We are delighted to be having their only exhibition of 2014.

The following passage is taken from the opening chapter of the accompanying book that was published to coincide with the exhibition.
Moon and Earth:
An enduring alchemy –
50 years of making pots by the Ystrad.
To watch Margaret and David throwing pots illustrates the sound basis of their working practice. Centreing the clay and forming the pot is a natural meditative process deriving from years of practice and with a deep knowledge of the nature of clay bodies and their characteristics. David works with high-fired stoneware while Margaret uses porcelain.

Copies of the catalogue; David – Margaret Frith, 50 Years of Brookhouse Pottery will be available during this exhibition. It is a must have for anyone who loves and admires the pots of David and Margaret Frith. All the works in this exhibition are from their latest making and firings.

OUR EXHIBITIONS ARE HELD AT THE
THORESBY GALLERY, THORESBY PARK.
