About Leach 100
British Ceramics Biennial and the Leach Pottery, St Ives, present a new milestone partnership exhibition. The joint show celebrates the relationships between place, landscape and material. Stoke-on-Trent, St Ives and wider Cornwall share a long and often entwined history connected through material in china clay and pottery-making – whether by hand in the studio or in a factory.
To mark its centenary, the Leach Pottery offered its first ever commissions. Artists were invited to develop new and inventive works in response to the heritage and values at the heart of the Leach Pottery. The commissions explore how pottery and clay practice has a vital and illuminating role to play in our society and creative lives.
