Bernard Leach and the Studio Pottery Movement of British Columbia (Talk) by Alex Lambley

Thinking of his four Canadian apprentices, John Reeve, Glenn Lewis, Mick Henry and Ian Steele, Bernard Leach once said that he had ‘a hope of something in Canada.’ The Studio Pottery movement of British Columbia was the result. PhD researcher Alex Lambley presents new research on Leach’s philosophy and practice and its transnational reception in the 1960s and 70s.

Warren MacKenzie – An American Potter in St. Ives (Film)

Warren MacKenzie at the Leach Pottery, St Ives 2013

Warren MacKenzie, celebrated American potter, was apprenticed to Bernard Leach from 1949-1952. This hour-long film captures his return to the Leach Pottery in September 2013 - the place which defined his philosophy as a potter. His vivid memories, deep affection for Bernard and above all, Warren’s honesty and humour shine through - a man who loves making pots.
