David & Margaret Frith are no strangers to Rufford, they have over the years been regular participants at the annual Earth & Fire ceramics festivals, they have also taken part in exhibitions held in the Rufford upstairs gallery space. David had a Solo Exhibitions in 1980's and both David and Margaret were participants in a group show 1993. This joint new exhibition "Concordia" in the upstairs gallery space of the Rufford Craft Centre will be their largest joint exhibition to date.
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.
The exhibition will feature major new works in both stoneware and porcelain. David will be showing some large jars of monumental size and large chargers. Margaret's works include some of her wonderful carved porcelain bowls, boxes and tea wares.
