Trevor Corser: 40 years a leach potter
Ends: 9th January 2017
Trevor Corser was the longest serving member of the Leach Pottery. Born in Oldham in 1938, he arrived in St Ives as a fisherman with no thoughts of becoming a potter and could not have imagined his future involvement in an artistic legacy so important to 20th century ceramics.

Amanda has worked at the Leach Pottery since graduating with her degree in Studio Pottery in 2000. She went on to train and work in the Old Pottery, spending five years learning traditional Leach techniques alongside Trevor Corser and Joanna Wason.
Amanda works in porcelain, decorating by incising into the clay, fluting, and painting with pigments. Since the Pottery’s reopening in 2008, Amanda works as a Learning and Participation Officer, making pots from her studio in Falmouth.
