Ring in the New Year by welcoming to our gallery the rich history and traditions of the Leach Pottery. Located in St. Ives, UK, the Leach Pottery was founded by Bernard Leach in 1920 and remains one of the most influential potteries in the world. On view is Leach standard ware and Leach porcelain standard ware, terms initiated by Leach for the production ware he first introduced in a 1946 catalogue. The work of current Leach potter Kat Wheeler is also on display, accompanied by the work of Jeff Oestreich, who apprenticed at the Leach from 1969 to 1971.
