JOHN LEACH is one of the foremost potters working in England today, he is the son of David Leach OBE and grandson of one of the founding fathers of studio ceramics Bernard Leach John was born in Pottery Cottage at the Leach Pottery, St.Ives.
After an apprenticeship with David Leach 1956-62 and followed by a workshop in California he founded his own pottery at Muchelney, Somerset in 1964. At first only producing a range of well made and designed cook and tableware.
In 1983 he felt confident enough to start to make his own designed and individually signed work. These pieces are all from the late 03 firing and represent some of John's most mature and significant pots.
