This story from the BBC Southwest might be of interest to someone.

"The Leach Pottery in St Ives has received £530,000 grant to help fund a revitalisation project".

Thank you for that link very interesting. This made me a bit whistful to
"It said phase one of the project, which has received planning permission, would see two former buildings replaced with with new pottery training and production rooms, a learning centre, offices and a storage facility."
Knocking down the older buildings seems a bit of history lost. Probably to be replaced with Modern Boring Blandness.

It's a strange comment considering how bland the front of the Existing Leach Pottery is? If this were a vets or a builders merchants you would not look at it twice as a piece of architecture, it's as dull as ditch water. It looks like my local doctor, not a world famous pottery.

I've posted this all before, I'll try posting it again in the hope that people will at least browse the Heritage, Design & Access Statement which has been put together with care and some attention to the history and importance of the location.

But it is what it is! The Leach Pottery. St Ives - Page 20 1f600
Buildings do NOT have to scream history just to be important It's very blandness is in stark to the vibrance of what went on inside it

Teapot from the modern Leach pottery. IT costs £100, which probably compares well with Teapot from the original standard ware range.

Following on from the fireplace in the Bill Ismay collection, here's the outside of a front garden wall in St. Ives a couple of weeks ago.

Post by NaomiM August 2nd 2023, 3:33 pm

Just adding a note that Bernard's 2nd wife was Laurie Cookes, 1940s-50s. According to some articles she originally joined the pottery as his pupil in 1931, although the Leach Pottery's official history page says she was employed as a shop assistant and secretary "[Bernard] then bought a caravan and toured England with Laurie Cookes in 1935. The couple settled in Dartington and built his pottery and a wooden house called 'The Cabin' in 1937." They married in 1944 and divorced in 1956 when he married Janet.

He was a one for the ladies, that Bernard. I remember Bill telling me about a Japanese woman that hung around the pottery for a while and, of course, May Scott, who became May Davis was pursued by Bernard.

If this had happened more recently, he could have made the tabloids!!

Was Bernard Leach still using the St Ives stamp at Dartington?

No but I don't know how much time, if any, he spent making pots there........ better things to do. The Leach Pottery. St Ives - Page 20 1f60a
