Trevor Corser/ 40 years a Potter
Ends: 9 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.
Fire It Up
5 November 2016 - January 2017
Demonstrating the skill and creativity of Lead Production Potter Roelof Uys and his team of Standard Ware production potters Kat Wheeler, Britta James, Callum Trudgeon, Matt Foster, Laurence Eastwood and Lexie Macleod, this exhibition gives a fascinating insight into the mutual influence of one potter on another, and may hint at the beginnings of a contemporary Leach Pottery ‘house style’.
All works for sale.
