Spot the Potter: Exhibition 2017
Created by the St Ives Rotary Club to compliment the ‘Spot the Artist’ Exhibition, the Leach Pottery will be hosting a ‘Spot the Potter’ Exhibition during the St Ives September Festival 2017.
The spot the potter exhibition is a unique exhibition and sale of pots from mainly professional potters in Cornwall. The proceeds from the sale will go towards the St Ives Rotary Club Travel Bursary for Potters in Cornwall.
The sale will take place over the St Ives September Festival 2017 (details to be confirmed) – the catch being that you don't know who made your pot until after you've have bought it.
Each pot bought will come with a certificate and information about the maker.
How it works
The potter’s marks will be out of site but to help, the names of all the potters will be listed separately at the exhibition and on the related page of the Leach Pottery website.
Each piece will be sold for £25 but many are worth much more than this. The challenge is to identify the artist and get a bargain.
The pots will be displayed for viewing (anonymously) at the Leach Pottery, Higher Stennack, St Ives, for two days, dates TBC.
Our aim is to provide an event which we all enjoy and raise money to support potters from Cornwall to apply for travel bursaries.
All the pots will be very generously donated by the potters and their help is greatly appreciated.
