‘Pottery & People’ is an exciting new online exhibition from the Leach Pottery, celebrating the pottery that surrounds us.

Help uncover the world's love of pottery and ceramics by sharing your favourite piece. It could be your everyday mug, a sentimental piece made by your child, or a family heirloom. From the ordinary to the extraordinary, the perfect to the imperfect, tell us what makes it special to you.

Your chosen object can be made by anyone and does not have to be a piece of Leach Ware or even a professional piece. This is a celebration of ceramics at all its levels, and in all its forms.

To join in via Instagram, simply share a video, no longer than 1 minute 30 seconds that showcases your favourite piece and explains the story behind it, using the hashtag #PotteryandPeople and tagging @theleachpottery. Alternatively, share a short piece of text no longer than 200 words long with an accompanying image (optional) with your chosen piece of pottery or ceramic art. Via Facebook, you can also upload your videos or images with accompanying text via the ‘Leach Pottery Community Page’, using the hashtag #PotteryandPeople.

A select number of the entries will be curated into a physical exhibition at the Leach Pottery in the future, when safe to do so.
