richard batterham

Richard Batterham trained at the Leach Pottery in 1957 and 1958. Returning to his native Dorset in 1959 to set up his own pottery. His intention was to make pots to enrich rather to adorn. In the first few years after establishing the pottery he was producing a range of pots that satisfied the needs of table and kitchen.
He is regarded by many as the potter following most closely within the Leach Tradition.. Though his pots are instantly recognizable as his own. He has worked alone, firing his two chambered kiln several times a year for over thirty years. Batterham's work has strength and rightness of purpose. Simply beautiful pots.
