Bernard Leach originally went to Japan as an etcher and if he hadn't attended a raku party in Japan he might not have become a potter. This exhibition shows the full range of work that Leach produced. There are pots of course but also a range of artwork including a lovely impressionist style painting of his first wife Muriel.
