       Exhibition curator Katie Herbert viewing the exhibition pots

Penlee House is to be congratulated in producing a fascinating exhibition featuring the work of many of the potters who set up their studios in the Penwith area of West Cornwall. The donation of a large collection of pots became the catalyst for staff member Katie Herbert to conceive the exhibition. Included in the show are examples of work from all of the major potteries, including Leach, Troika, Boscean, Celtic, Tremaen, Leaper and Lamorna, and items by individual potters such as John Bedding, Alan Brough and William Marshall.
