MUCHELNEY POTTERY: SUMMER EXHIBITION: 2 June – 28 August 2018

b-summer 18

In addition to John Leach’s signature pieces and his regular Cooking, Serving, Storage and Drinking and Pouring collection his Gallery is hosting a Summer Exhibition featuring the latest work from local artists Holly Webb, John Gammans and Chris Kampf.

In case you don’t know…… John Leach is the eldest grandson of renowned potter Bernard Leach and son of David Leach, he continues the family tradition at Muchelney Pottery on the edge of the ancient village of Muchelney in the heart of the Somerset Levels.

Muchelney kitchen pots are used daily in kitchens all over the world, but the pottery is still very much a small family business. The pots are all lovingly hand-thrown, using local clays, and wood-fired in the three-chambered kiln to the high stoneware temperature of 1320°C, which creates their distinctive ‘toasted’ finish.

Muchelney Pottery was established in 1965 by John Leach and his wife Lizzie. John set up the Pottery having trained with his grandfather Bernard, and his father David to continue the tradition of high quality handmade ceramics. John with Nick Rees, were the core team for many years along with students who came to learn the craft of working with clay. One of these students was Mark Melbourne who has been part of the Muchelney team for 16 years.

If you can’t get to see John and wish to view, and perhaps buy, some Mulchelney wood-fired kitchenware pots have a look at the online shop.
