His mother Eleanor (née Sharp) died in childbirth. He spent his first three years in Japan with his father, Andrew Leach, until he moved back to Hong Kong in 1890. Leach attended the Slade School of Fine Art and the London School of Art, where he studied etching under Frank Brangwyn.

It would be a challenge to find a potter in the world more widely known and respected than Bernard Howell Leach. Though considered the father of British studio pottery, he is as famous in Japan as he is in Europe and the United States―not only as an artist and craftsman, but also as a philosopher. Though born in Hong Kong, Leach spent his early life in Japan. He moved to England at the age of ten, and he attended art school in London, before returning to live in Japan from 1909 to 1920.

I didn't realize this book would be quite so technical - even though the description said it was for potters. I thought it would have more photographs and examples of Leach Pottery work (what there is, is beautiful). I wanted to know more about other potters working there, and see current examples. The introduction was informative.
Orevise
An older, influential book from a potter and scholar that still has relevance today. A never ending source of inspiration for me.
Modar
Not exactly what I expected - it is the complete story of pottery.

The first chapter, “Towards A Standard” gives lovely insights about why making things with our hands gives humans profound insights into ceramic objects we surround ourselves with.
Nnulam
Arrived in great shape and well written.
Kare
The first chapter of this book should be read by every potter before their first day of class. That is to avoid being scoffed at. Seriously, if you are someone who is involved with clay on any level, read this book.
