Founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, the Leach Pottery, St Ives, is among the most respected and influential potteries in the world. Over the last hundred years it has forged the shape of Studio Pottery in the UK and beyond. Scores of potters, students and apprentices, from across the world have come to the Leach Pottery to train, creating a uniquely international environment in the heart of Cornwall and maintaining the Pottery's creative principle of East/West exchange. Today, the Leach Pottery Studio, Museum and Gallery continue developing Bernard Leach's historic legacy.

If you're visiting the Leach Pottery this week you can see the new exhibition by David and Margaret Frith in the entrance gallery. They have been making pots for more than fifty years and now live and work at Brookhouse Pottery in Denbigh, North Wales.

 See our long awaited celebration of Trevor Corser: 40 Years a Leach Potter complimented by our special Leach Pottery publication, "Trevor Corser: His Life & Work". The exhibition and publication mark Trevor's rightful place in the history of the Pottery. A small selection of his pieces are on sale in the Museum.
