Product Description

From the Author

The Leach Legacy is the number of students and apprentices who have worked with Bernard Leach and absorbed his teaching and philosophy and become potters in their own right. These potters have spread their teaching world wide. There are 74 potters with portrait, two colour photos of their pots and biography. Bernard, Hamada, David and Janet get special attention. The foreword is written by John Bedding, a former Leach student, who gives an insight into working with Bernard Leach.

From the Inside Flap

The Leach Legacy is important, not only because it served as a base for Bernard Leach to put his ideas into practice, but also because it involved a team of workers, jointly sharing their passion for clay. From students apprentices and professional potters to clay mixers, kiln firers and pot packers, the Leach Pottery encouraged, nurtured and trained the art of the potter. Many of the workers came from distant areas of the world to be a part of this unique pottery. It is fitting that the contribution of these men and women be recognised, and this book rightly acknowledges their role in the tremendous endeavour of the Leach Pottery. Emmanual Cooper

This is the only book to feature 73 potters, world wide, who studied and worked with Bernard Leach. There is a portrait of each potter and two colour photos of their work. A foreword by John Bedding, as a former student, gives an insight into his working day and his relationship with Bernard. Marion Whybrow gives the historical background of the setting up and working of the Leach Pottery when Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada built their three-chambered climbing kiln in 1920.
