Joanna Wason has been associated with the Leach Pottery in St. Ives for over thirty years. She came to the pottery in 1988 to work with Janet Leach as her general workshop and firing assistant. After Janet died in 1997 Joanna continued making her own individual pots in the old workshop till it closed for refurbishment. These days Joanna pots from home but she still works at the Leach Pottery as the Museum Manager.

Here are some images of the Joanna's Slipware - Stoneware - Porcelain exhibition at the Leach Pottery in 2015, more information can be seen here.
