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?

Just checking these really are candle holders or tealight holders and not something esoteric that I should know but don’t!

Egg cups possibly? They look quite early, quite simplistic with none of the superb glazing that David is famed for.The sort of thing you could produce a great number of to sell quickly.

Post by denbydump June 10th 2020, 1:33 pm

A nicely made jug, 8 1/2 in, The outlines of 2 or even 3 marks are visible, but completely filled in with glaze.
To me the style is shouting Frith, any thoughts?

Definitely Frith. Exactly their glazing and clay type, more likely to be David Frith. There are nearly always two marks. Their personal one and Brookhouse pottery. Got several with exactly the same glaze.
