When we were in Cornwall we visited one of my favourite places, the Leach Pottery.
Love this on the roof!
I am a huge fan of a Leach owl...
....and his hares of course!
The whole place is so calm and tranquil.
Why are pottery studios so gorgeous?
These are the actual tools used by Bernard Leach.
They are art works themselves aren't they!
You could have a go at painting some of the Japanese-inspired motifs, hubby was a a natural.
(And, as usual, I didn't do what I was supposed to!)
First aid box envy...
Not only was Leach's pottery beautiful, but his thoughts and words were just as inspirational:
'As clothes are to the human body so are glazes to pots. Both serve practical ends, both should enhance inherent beauty of form.'
Leach would sit at this fireplace and give individual critiques on each of the pots made.
The shop of temptation...
I'll leave you with another one of Leach's inspirational quotes that had been printed on the loo wall...
