The Leach Studio

The Leach Pottery’s new studio was built in 2008 and houses our skilled team of production potters, Roelof Uys, Kat Wheeler, and Britta Wengeler who make our new tableware range under the guidance of Lead Potter, John Bedding.  The team is assisted by a 12-month volunteer pottery apprentice; our 2013-14 volunteer is Tinni Arora from India.

In addition, the studio regularly hosts visiting students and interns from countries around the world including Japan, Taiwan, USA, Canada, India, Germany, France, Austria and Italy.

If you are interested in any aspect of the studio's work please contact

The Leach Studio is operated by the Bernard Leach Enterprises Ltd. (Company registration 05965856), a wholly owned subsidiary company of the Bernard Leach (St Ives) Trust Ltd.   Profits from the activities of the Enterprises are covenanted to the Trust to support our charitable activities.
