Since the late 1990s, David Frith has concentrated on large, rounded forms such as bottles and jars as well as large platters with a base celadon glaze. David’s work descends from the Leach and British Studio Pottery tradition, where the aesthetics and ideologies of the East and West ignited a new tradition of high fired ceramics.
He uses locally sourced clay including waste by-products from local factories to make domestic reduced stoneware, decorated with wax resist and bold glaze trailed decoration. He has several wood and gas kilns for firings. Their research and experimentation give their work its own identity.
