Senses in the studio

30th May 2022

We visited the Leach Pottery in St Ives to talk about using the senses when we create with clay and the connection this artisan studio has with its coastal location. Watch the film here…

A short walk from the sea front, tucked away among houses alongside the Stennack River lies the Leach Pottery, an international centre of creative clay work. Founded in 1920, the pottery has a pivotal role in the story of St Ives as a place of artistic endeavour.

We spoke to the pottery’s Ellen Love about the studio’s connection to the sea and the role the senses have when creating with clay.

From walks around the hallowed seaside studios to family workshops getting to grips with the wheel, treat your senses to a Leach Pottery visit.
