Earth & Fire is one of the country's premier ceramic events, taking place each year at the end of June in Nottinghamshire.
Sponsored by Inspire and Nottinghamshire County Council, over one hundred potters from across the UK and Europe come to the fair to showcase their wares and sell their pieces direct to the public.
The event attracts collectors, gallery owners, enthusiasts and the general public alike. Visitors flock to meet and talk to the potters who sell everything from garden planters and sculptures, to bowls, pie dishes, teapots, mugs, plates and egg cups.
Unfortunately due to the current circumstances relating to Covid-19 and following the latest government guidelines, the 2020 event has been cancelled.
However, the catalogue for Earth & Fire 2020 can be viewed online here to enable you to browse images and contact details of all the potters you would have seen in June.
Many of the exhibitors also have their own web and etsy shops so please take a look.
A celebration of clay in all its forms, visitors can:
The exhibitors change every year, but the fair regularly attracts many potters who have been attending since the first event over 20 years ago and who still make the journey each year to take part. So many talented people make Earth & Fire a true celebration of clay.
