An Apprenticeship

Celebrating the completion of the Leach Pottery’s first new apprenticeship
Exhibition: 17 June 2017 to 30 July 2017.

The Leach Pottery proudly presented a solo exhibition of Callum Trudgeon, the Pottery’s first fully trained Leach-Seasalt apprentice. It featured Callum’s own standard ware including his range of domestic mugs, bowls, teabowls and one-off decorative works like moon jars and platters. The pots are mostly stoneware with some porcelain, including both patterned and glazed surfaces.

Callum’s three-year Leach Apprenticeship began in May 2014 with the generous support of Seasalt who part-funded the first two years. Callum completed his third and final year of training at the end of May 2017. During the apprenticeship, Callum trained to make pots by learning about all aspects of Leach Standard Ware production. This included clay preparation, throwing pots, glazing and firing.
