Trevor Corser - 40 Years a Leach Potter

Trevor Corser Exhibition

19th March 2016 to 28th August 2016
Leach Pottery Cube Gallery
Higher Stennack
St Ives
TR26 2HE
01736 799703

Trevor Corser was the longest serving member of the Leach Pottery. Born in Oldham in 1938, he arrived in St Ives as a fisherman with no thoughts of becoming a potter and could not have imagined his future involvement in an artistic legacy so important to 20th century ceramics.

Trevor Corser sadly died on 30th November 2015, aged 77, whilst working on his 2016 retrospective at the Leach Pottery. We were looking forward to seeing Trevor return here so that we could acknowledge his great contribution to the Leach Pottery, but in his absence we continue our plans to celebrate his long association with us, and in March present 'Trevor Corser: 40 Years a Leach Potter', our first major exhibition of his work.

Leach Heritage

Janet Leach Vase Circa 1960s

19th March 2016 to 8th May 2016
Leach Pottery Entrance Gallery
Higher Stennack
St Ives
TR26 2HE
01736 799703

On show from 19 March, to accompany our Trevor Corser: 40 Years A Potter exhibition, the companion exhibition Leach Heritage runs until 8 May. It includes heritage pots made at the Leach Pottery from the mid 1960’s onward, including pots made by Trevor both at the Leach Pottery and Gaolyard Studios, heritage pots from the Walker Collection including work by William Marshall, Shigeyoshi Ichino, and Janet and Bernard Leach, and a selection of the old Leach Standard Ware.

The Walker Collection, acquired during a lifelong passion for ceramics, was kindly donated to the Leach by Geoffrey Walker. Geoffrey felt it timely to now pass on his collection and for the works to find new homes and be appreciated by a wider audience. In this respect he has allowed us to sell off selected pieces in order to initiate an acquisition fund which will enable us to buy important work relevant to the Leach Pottery’s heritage.
