Muchelney Team Visit the Gallery
The Gallery at Bevere and the Muchelney Pottery in the Somerset Levels have had a fruitful relationship for some time now and it was a particular pleasure to have a visit from the Muchelney team – John Leach grandson of Bernard Leach and the son of David) together with Nick Rees and Mark Melbourne.
They had the opportunity to talk with our team as well as look around the galleries and the garden. John’s interest in trees was particularly evident as he strolled through the sculpture trail. We all share a passion for studio ceramics and in particular the need to promote interest in and an understanding of ceramics to a wider public.
The Muchelney Pottery domestic ware is very popular. The pottery’s appeal comes from the warm colour, derived from the ‘toasting’ in the wood-fired kilns and many different pots for all purposes in the kitchen and on the table. The Gallery at Bevere is delighted to have a wide range for sale in the Gallery’s Space Upstairs.
