David Fry

David Lawrence Fry has been practising in studio ceramics for over 35 years, and is now one of Britain’s leading studio potters, based in Newcastle upon Tyne. The best pieces of his work being highly sought after by collectors from around the World. His method of working and the nature of the kiln firing makes every piece  produced a unique and original work. His work is inspired by the glazes and ideas of the early ceramics from Japan, China and Korea

He has spent many years studying and working out recipes for the ancient glazes to which he added his own intuition to increase their depth and beauty, achieving layers of colour within colour; He has developed a unique range of Reduction fired  Flambe’, Chun, Jun, Wood Ash, Copper Red,  Lang-Yao, Shino and Iron glazes, produced in high fired stoneware. The work produced is mainly vases, bowls and platters. No toxic materials are used in these ceramics, they are therefore maker, user, and environmentally friendly.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 1 day we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
