The first Earth & Fire took place at Rufford Abbey in Nottinghamshire on the last weekend of June in 1994. In attendance were just a handful of potters who had attended ceramic fairs in mainland Europe and wanted to be part of a home-grown event.


Our exhibitors are selected by a panel of working potters who have a history of exhibiting with us and know the event. Changing every year, the selection panel ensures the quality remains the highest. Over the years we have changed, expanded and in 2017 moved site, but our aim remains the same – to present and celebrate the very best studio pottery.


With the support of hundreds of potters and thousands of visitors Earth & Fire sits at the heart of the ceramic calendar.
