The Leach Pottery, St Ives

Founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Hamada Shoji, the Leach Pottery is among the most respected and influential studio potteries in the world. Over the last hundred years it has forged the shape of studio pottery production in the UK and beyond. Scores of potters, students and apprentices from across the world have come to the Leach Pottery to train, creating a uniquely international environment in the heart of Cornwall, and maintaining the pottery's creative principle of East/West exchange. Today the newly restored Leach Pottery studio, museum and gallery are continuing the development of Bernard Leach's historic legacy.
