Bernard Leach (1887-1979)
After losing his mother as a baby, Leach spent his early childhood in Kyoto raised by his father, a Japanese resident.
He later returned to England, but came back to Japan in 1909 aged 21. Connecting with writers and artists from the Shirakaba Group, he was especially friendly with Yanagi Soetsu, and became captivated by ceramics. He began studying ceramics under Ogata Kenzan the 6th, producing Raku ware and so on.
He endeavored in pottery techniques at Hamada Shoji's Mashiko kiln base, became acquainted with Kawai Kanjiro and participated with him in Yanagi's mingei movement. In 1920 he returned to England accompanied by Hamada, and established a Japanese style Noborigama kiln in St Ives, known as the Leach Pottery.
Afterwards he went to and from Japan and England, working on pieces and developing unique works that fused Eastern and Western cultures.
Leach was awarded an Order of the Sacred Treasure 2nd Class in 1966 and a Japan Foundation Prize in 1974. He passed away in 1979 aged 92.
