Bernard Leach founded The Leach Pottery in St. Ives, Cornwall, England, in 1920, where he later wrote A Potter's Book. The Leach Pottery, on a hill overlooking the artists' colony of St. Ives, soon began welcoming visitors from around the world to view its unique experiment in reviving hand-crafted pottery. In 1952, members of the local photography club set out to show the process of pottery by producing this silent film. Here is a presentation of the daily activities at The Leach Pottery. Various stages of the creation of pottery are illustrated from the Pottery's standard ware as well as Bernard Leach himself designing and completing one of his "willow" jars. The locally-made amateur film, now restored and released with the cooperationof the late Janet Darnell Leach, provides an intimate look at The Leach Pottery
