David and Margaret Frith
Of Brookhouse Pottery in North Wales
Margaret works in porcelain making personal pieces sometimes faceted, fluted or altered with decorative techniques of reduction glazes, carving and brushwork. David with his mastery of the potter’s wheel makes large pieces decorated with his personal style of hakeme- a Japanese brush technique, rope impress and waxed motifs under heavy reduction overglazes combined with ashed surfaces.
David and Margaret Frith set up their first workshop in Denbigh 1963. They moved to The Malt House in 1976, an 18th. century woollen mill which was later used as a brewery hence its name.
The pots are fired in wood fired or gas reduction firings which produce the beautiful results particular to their styles.
