Paul Vibert was born and raised in St. Ives where
his father was the manager of the Leach Pottery for 25 years.
As a boy, Paul collected pots rejected and thrown into the Stennack
river by Bernard Leach, however as quickly as he brought them
home his mother threw them out! This early fascination with pottery
over the years and as
so did Paul’s collection of Bill’s work. Paul visited
Bill's Lelant pottery after firings and was able to purchase
the pots that "talked" to him.
This exhibition, which features over 300 Bill Marshall pots,
provides a unique opportunity to admire the full range of skills
of a true master craftsman.
I would like to personally thank Paul for temporarily sharing
his wonderful collection and Kestle Barton for providing a beautiful
for the exhibition.
