21, 22 & 23 June 2019
at The Harley Gallery, Welbeck Nottinghamshire S80 3LW
Earth and Fire International Ceramic Fair is one of the country's premier ceramic events taking place every year at the end of June in North Nottinghamshire. The fair takes place on the Welbeck Estate, which 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.
The event attracts collectors, gallery owners, enthusiasts and the general public alike, who flock to Earth & Fire to meet and talk to the potters selling everything from garden planters and sculptures, to bowls, pie dishes, teapots, mugs, plates and egg cups.

Earth & Fire 2018 was the last show our friend Anna Mercedes attended. Following a long battle with cancer she died on the 9th of September with her family by her side.
Anna was a very special part of the Earth & Fire family and the wider ceramic community. She first exhibited with us in 2012 and had returned every year since. She had a real zest for life and for sharing her skills with others. In 2016 she planned all the potters games at Earth & Fire, making medals for Winners and Losers. She even managed to keep some semblance of control of the general mayhem that ensued!
We will miss her
