Third Seasalt Bursary Apprentice at Leach Pottery announced: 23.10.2017


Following a search that saw applications from as far afield as the USA, Nigeria and the Netherlands, the Leach Pottery in St Ives have announced the appointment of their third apprentice, funded by a bursary set up with Cornish clothing brand, Seasalt. The bursary forms part of Seasalt’s pioneering, new campaign, The Modern Creatives Project, which encourages the idea of living a simple and creative life.

Annabelle Smith, 23 from the South West, will now have the opportunity to train and study at the internationally-renowned Cornish pottery.  Annabelle had her first ceramics lesson at school, but it was in her third year at Gloucester University studying a BA in Fine Art, that she really found a love for pottery.

Annabelle said, When I received the call to say I had made it, I instantly felt relief – it’s my dream come true! Since I finished university I knew I wanted to be a production potter, and when I heard about the apprenticeship, I knew it would be the ideal start to my career. I applied as soon as the applications were open. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for me, I couldn’t ask for more.

Founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Japanese potter, Shoji Hamada, the Leach Pottery is now a UK charity. Alongside promoting the work and life of Bernard Leach, it also works to further the development of Studio Pottery and encourage young talent through its studio and education programme. With long-held strong links to the creative community, particularly in St Ives, Seasalt were delighted to provide backing for this innovative 24-month scheme.

Libby Buckley, Leach Pottery Director, said, “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to train a highly skilled potter in the Leach tradition which links back to Bill Marshall – the original apprentice in 1938. We’re incredibly grateful to Seasalt for funding the apprenticeship scheme and providing this opportunity.”

Seasalt Co-founder and Chairman, Neil Chadwick, said, We’re proud and excited to be supporting our third apprentice this year. We’ve been involved with the Leach Pottery for many years now, it’s great to be helping to create a legacy at such a world-renowned pottery and we’re looking forward to working with them for many years to come.
