Last Week at The Leach

FB_IMG_1448540126595So this is the first proper week back at work, I know it’s the 11th January but be gentle with me, I needed a rest and actually it’s a very gentle start for me even so. My belly is getting somewhat in the way now when trying to throw so I think the making for me while now be sporadic. I have some orders to finish which I would like to get done in the next week or so but mainly I will be doing much gentler, slower activities that involve a lot less movement until the new world arrives. I have plans for a bit of knitting and maybe a little quilt, nothing more energetic nor demanding that that, lots of feet up and lots of being looked after by my wonderful husband.

In the mean time, this is the last week of our exhibition ‘A Love Affair With Clay’ at The Leach Pottery in St. Ives. It’s been showing there for almost six weeks and we are thrilled to report that it has been very well received. Doug Fitch Green Applied Tapered Jug

Thank you to everyone who has visited the show over the period and to those who decided that our pots should travel home with them. Also of course to those of you who couldn’t get to the exhibition but who managed to buy pots over the phone and by email. The internet is really important to the way that we run our business and it allows us to do things that we would really struggle to do otherwise.

Have a look, tell us what you think and enjoy the Leach Pottery Museum while you are there.
