The Leach Pottery in 2002

Background

In 1920 Bernard Leach returned from Japan with Hamada Shoji and established the Leach Pottery on a hill above St. Ives. They were soon joined by Michael Cardew, the first of a long line of young would be potters eager to learn their trade under the gaze of the master. Some of these students and apprentices left to set up their own potteries and so the Leach influence spread over the world.

Here I attempt to combine information from various sources to show a family tree starting with Bernard Leach and ending with the final potter to join the Leach Pottery, Amanda Brier who arrived in 2000.

The Leach Pottery is now closed for redevelopment and is scheduled to re-open in Autumn 2007, for further information consult The Leach Pottery Restoration Project.

I know that this tree incomplete. If you would like to help me with its development or correct any inaccuracies please use use the Contact page.
