The Leach Studio

The Leach Pottery’s new studio was built in 2008 and houses our skilled team of production potters, Roelof Uys, Kat Wheeler, and Britta James who make our new standard ware range under the guidance of Lead Potter, John Bedding.  The team is assisted by two apprentices, Callum Trudgeon and Matt Forster. Our 2016 volunteer is Lexie Macleod who has worked at The Harray Pottery, Orkney and Cromarty Pottery, Scotland.

If you are interested in any aspect of the studio's work please contact

The Leach Studio is operated by the Bernard Leach Enterprises Ltd. (Company registration 05965856), a wholly owned subsidiary company of the Bernard Leach (St Ives) Trust Ltd.   Profits from the activities of the Enterprises are covenanted to the Trust to support our charitable activities.
