About the Maker

Annabelle Smith studied Fine Art at the University of Gloucestershire, where she specialised in contemporary installation art. In her third year, an electric wheel arrived in the 3D room of the university and she began to realise her dream of becoming a production potter. After graduating, Annabelle started volunteering in various potteries around Devon and Cornwall. She helped at the Oxford Anagama project before spending a short time as a volunteer at the Leach and continuing on to do some work at Kigbeare studios.


In October 2017, Annabelle became the Leach Pottery’s third Seasalt Bursary Apprentice. ‘The process of designing and making beautiful, utilitarian pieces for others to use sparks joy in me. I have always been practical and enjoyed working with my hands, so pottery is the perfect path for me to take.’


About the Leach Pottery

Founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, the Leach Pottery, St Ives, is among the most respected and influential potteries in the world. Over the last hundred years it has forged the shape of Studio Pottery in the UK and beyond. Scores of potters, students and apprentices, from across the world have come to the Leach Pottery to train, creating a uniquely international environment in the heart of Cornwall and maintaining the Pottery's creative principle of East/West exchange. Today, the Leach Pottery Studio, Museum and Gallery continue developing Bernard Leach's historic legacy.
