"Look to combine beauty with function in a pot" - Bernard Leach
Growing up surrounded by a family of potters, I draw on those early influences: the work of my Father, (David Leach), and Grandfather, (Bernard Leach), Japanese and Korean art.
I have assimilated my surroundings; therefore my work has become a natural expression of what is personal to me.
I find the ongoing challenge of discovering my own visual language and voice as a potter both exciting and rewarding.
It is a lifetime journey. SL
