Celebrating the completion of the Leach Pottery’s first new apprenticeship
Preview (all welcome): 16 June 2017, 6-8pm
Exhibition: 17 June 2017 to 30 July 2017.
The Leach Pottery proudly presents a solo exhibition of Callum Trudgeon, the Pottery’s first fully trained Leach-Seasalt apprentice. It will feature 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 completes 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.
The exhibition runs in the Leach Pottery Shop. All works for sale, prices from £10 to £250.
