The College has been lucky enough to be given a private collection of pottery by a range of potters who have worked in the Leach-Cardew style. They have a shared heritage, with most of them having spent time either at the Leach Pottery, St Ives, Cornwall or with Bernard Leach’s first pupil, Michael Cardew. The collection emphasises the work of Clive Bowen and Richard Batterham, exemplars of the ‘slipware’ and ‘stoneware’ traditions, respectively. The work in the collection embodies Leach’s vision of pots that are handmade, functional and aesthetically satisfying, while illustrating their own individual interpretations of Eastern and Western potting traditions.
Visit us and enjoy this remarkable treat. On arrival you will also be given the opportunity to see our Chapel, when open, and view the Burne-Jones stained glass windows.
