Brookhouse pottery

I don't have many studio pots but this is the best quality piece I have/found. It feels really great to hold, balanced and heavy and a lovely glaze.

I did say I was going to sell my collection, however when I popped into a shop today I had to treat myself to this beautiful rectangular box marked with the Brookhouse mark but no potters mark. I would like to think it is David Frith? what do you nice people think? The sizes are approximately 22cm by 8.5cm

A porcelain charger by Margaret Frith.  This dates to around 2000. The mark is a bit indistinct because of the glaze.

A circa 45 minute video made to to coincide with their 50th anniversary show at Ruthin gallery last year. Its really worth watching. Lovely people.
There are also several shorter videos on youtube worth looking at.

Great film. Saw a discussion recently about whether David or Margaret decorated each other's pots but it seems they keep their work fairly separate, and she makes the smaller pieces that act as kiln fillers between David's large pots.

shhhsh forgot.....

Mine is like ... pizza without olives, needs a lid. The only thing that put me off is who the **** uses ginger jars...Now I like to use my stuff do my kitchen if full of Briglin storage jars with cork lids etc, but waht could you store in these ?

Ashes?

My is Jar - overall 165mm wide, 190mm high
Opening - bit at top is max 72 mm tapering to 67mm at the top with an opening of 58mm glazed top 82mm dia.

So strange that there are other missing lids. Must mean that they were used and broken? Or MIL came round and picked up and turned over - lid drops off?
