Potters show pots at British Potfest

 

The annual Potfest In The Park exhibition is held  in the grounds of Hutton-in-the-Forest at Penrith, Cumbria on the edge of the Lake Districts National Park. Over 100 exhibitors from around the globe participate bringing together an eclectic mix of pottery and statues. The medieval castle setting seems appropriate for pottery artists plying their wares, this ancient art form has graced the outdoor marketplace since time immemorial.

Potfest provides the opportunity of meeting ceramic artists of international repute selling their pottery in the midst of a community rather than through a gallery exhibition. Initially organised by Christine and Geoff Cox, 2016 will the 23rd  Potfest festival. The marvelous photos here were taken by Christine Cox.
