Elizabeth Fritsch CBE MA (RCA) (born 1940) is a British studio potter and ceramic artist. She uses fine technically proficient hand built coiling techniques; architectural ceramic form, optical effects and surface design which, are usually hand painted with coloured slips. The stoneware ceramics are biscuit fired and often re-fired a number of times at high temperatures through various stages. Each Fritsch pot is unique, individual and distinctive. They are usually displayed in selected groups and themes set to the artist's requirements.

Fritsch is one of the first of a group of pioneering women ceramicists ‘the RCA group’ to emerged from the Royal College of Art in London during 70s others included; Alison Britton, Jacqui Poncelet, Carol McNicoll, Jill Crowley and sculptor Glenys Barton. They formed a group of progressive 'New Ceramics' that emerged forming an important shift and influence in British ceramic art in terms of sculptural form, colour and experimentation away from the more utilitarian ceramics that had preceded. Her work has generated many major solo International exhibitions, she has twice been nominated for the Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts in Ceramics and has received a CBE for her contribution to the Arts.
