John Bedding's Gallery, St Ives
As well as having a lovely home with lots of wonderful artefacts John ran a beautiful gallery containing some of his own work as well as other very good artists. This tall "Blade" shaped pot is one of Johns. He made lots of different shapes with texture and colours that were quite unusual.
David has corrected my earlier posting of the archival picture of Bernard Leach holding court by the fireplace. The caption should read: Bernard Leach (centre) in front of the corner fireplace at The Leach Pottery discussing the finer points of making a jug with Mary Gibson Horrocks (left) Valerie Bond and David Leach, 1947.
