The Leach Pottery presents an exhibition of new pots from members of our Studio Team. Inspired by the material of clay itself, this exhibition shows how some of our potters work with clay in their own time when they are not making our Standard Ware pottery.

It will feature pots by Laurence Eastwood, Matt Foster, Britta James, and Kat Wheeler, offering a range of styles, glazes and functions. Expect to see a selection of functional table and kitchen ware like mixing bowls, jars, teapots, platters, bowls, mugs, and jugs, as well as more individual pieces like bottles, vases and chargers.

The pots will be made from a wide range of clay and glazes, including materials that have been locally sourced and blended. The colour palette is sure to be eclectic, including shino glazes, celadon greens, copper reds, blues, tenmoku black and browns, all combined with different styles of surface and hand decoration.

The exhibition runs in the Entrance Gallery. All works for sale.
