55 Years In Business For Denbigh’s Brookhouse Pottery

A couple of potters from Denbigh are celebrating an impressive 55 years in business, having run the Brookhouse Pottery in an old woollen mill near the Clwydian Range since 1976!

David and Margaret Ffrith, 75 and 74 respectively, have enjoyed huge success in their 55 years of working together, exhibiting their work in London, Tokyo and a whole host of other cities, the Denbighshire Free Press reports.

The couple first met at Stoke-on-Trent College of Art, moving to North Wales three years before they got married way back in 1964. Ms Ffrith specialises in ceramics and her husband in stonemasonry, with the pair’s work inspired by Chinese and Japanese traditions.

Their creations have been seen in the likes of the Krempl in Munich, Shun in Tokyo, Du Don in France and Amphora in Holland… but now they’re celebrating their half a century in business with an exhibition a little closer to home.

You can see what they’ve created over the years at Ruthin Craft Centre, with the exhibition first opening in November. It’s on until January 27th so you have a few days left to pop over to have a look.

“Running a pottery for 55 years is quite a feat and David and Margaret are an amazing phenomena; their longevity springs from a dynamic combination of talent and hard work,” director of the craft centre Philip Hughes said.

While you’re at the centre, why not see what other exhibitions are taking place? There’s also an Indian Threads exhibit on at the same time, a celebration of an exchange project between artists from Wales and those from Kachchh in rural Gujarat.
