The Leach Pottery is looking for a visionary director with the flair and skills required to build on the work that has been undertaken to develop the Leach ‘brand’ locally, nationally and internationally.
The Leach Pottery is considered by many to be the birthplace of British studio pottery. One of the great figures of 20th century art, Bernard Leach, played a crucial pioneering role in creating an identity for artist potters across the world. The recently restored Leach Pottery site includes a new museum, created to celebrate the life, work, influences and legacy of Bernard Leach. Exhibition, gallery and shop space provide regular shows throughout the year showcasing work by leading regional, national and international studio potters.
The new Director will be responsible for delivering the business plan, fundraising and for the running of a viable organisation, will provide creative leadership for the Leach Pottery as a museum, gallery and visitor attraction and shape and oversee all aspects of the Pottery’s creative and cultural programmes.
