Bernard Leach founded The Leach Pottery in St. Ives, Cornwall, England in 1920, where he later wrote his classic; A POTTER'S BOOK.
The Leach Pottery, high on a hill overlooking the charming artist's colony of St. Ives, soon began welcoming visitors from around the world to view it's unique experiment in reviving hand-crafted pottery, then regarded as doomed to extinction.
In 1952, as The Leach Pottery was acheiving international renown, members of the local photography club set out to show the process of creating pottery by producing this silent film.
The resulting film is a charming presentation of the daily activities at The Leach Pottery. We witness various stages of creation of some of the Pottery's famed standard ware, and then see Bernard Leach himself designing and completing one of his "willow" jars.
Although there are several professional TV documentaries on The Leach Pottery, this locally- made amateur film, now restored and released for the first time on video with the cooperation of the late Janet Darnell Leach, provides an especially intimate look at The Leach Pottery.
