Preview evening, Japanese Connections: Celebrating the Leach Pottery's Japanese Links

The Leach Pottery invites you to a preview evening to celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions:

‘Clay: That Continuous Material’ looks at the story of clay from the pioneering early days of the Leach Pottery, which made its own clays, to clay’s relationship with Cornwall.

 ‘Japanese Connections’ – is a selling exhibition showcasing our Japanese links which thrive to this day.

To celebrate this double-opening, the Leach Pottery is excited to welcome Jon Keast, owner of Scarlet Wines, Lelant, who will be offering an informal tasting of a whisky from Japan, a plum sake and a Cornish gin – all served in our Leach Porcelain Sake cups. 
Jon will be at the Leach Pottery from 6.30-7.30pm to serve the drinks and chat about them. There will also be the opportunity to have-a-go at throwing a pot on one of the wooden kick wheels in the Old Pottery under the guidance of one of our production potters.
