leachpotteryblog

In celebration of Bonfire Night, the Leach Pottery team are sharing something of the excitement, fear and fun of a potter’s profession by inviting the public to a live firing of a specially constructed kiln The kiln will be opened at 7pm on Friday 4 November whilst still white hot, to reveal what is hoped will be a fully intact, glowing ceramic sculpture.

Hot soup and bread will be served by the fireplace in the Old Pottery, and the event will be accompanied by a ‘Fire It Up’ winter exhibition preview in the Museum’s Entrance gallery.

‘Fire It Up’ is an exhibition of collaborative and individual works by the Pottery’s talented studio team. Demonstrating the skill and creativity of Senior Production Potter Roelof Uys and his team of Standard Ware production potters Kat Wheeler, Britta James, Callum Trudgeon, Matt Foster, Laurence Eastwood and Lexie Macleod, this exhibition gives a fascinating insight into the mutual influence of one potter on another, and may hint at the beginnings of a contemporary Leach Pottery ‘house style’.

Doors open for the live firing event at 6pm. The exhibition runs from 5 November to mid-January in the Leach Pottery Entrance Gallery. All works are for sale.
