Leach Pottery, St. Ives - 17th August to 22nd October 2019

Michel Francois travelled to Korea in 2018 to work with potter Young Gi Seo and recently the two have been collaborating at Michel's studio in Falmouth to produce pots for this exhibition. The exhibition features a number of large moon jars shown alongside domestic Korean forms.

Michel was one of the first potters to join the Leach Pottery after its restoration on 2008 so it is good to see how he has progressed.

Young Gi is a reknowned potter in Korea and is a professor at Kyonggi University.
