About the Gallery
Founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, the Leach Pottery is probably the most famous and certainly the most influential studio pottery in the world. For decades it forged the shape of studio pottery production in the UK and beyond. Scores of potters, students and apprentices trained here, attracted from all across the world and creating an unusual mix of the very local and the completely global. Today the Leach Pottery is a living tribute to Bernard Leach and his legacy.
