I just read your page about the Leach pottery. I did an internship at Wenford Bridge Pottery in the Autumn of 2000,and while I was there, Seth Cardew was kind enough to take me to St. Ives and pay a visit to the pottery. Fortunately, things were quiet soTrevor took us around the whole place, and I was able to indulge in the tea you mention by the glaze buckets. I have a picture of myself in front of the fireplace where Hamada's Sung figures reside.
Thanks for stirring ome fond memories.

Curses! I thought I had a World Exclusive on the Leach Pottery Tea Ceremony!
Lucky you to get a tour from the Potmeister. Of course, the future of the Leach still dangles over the precipice of disaster, so your memories might be even more rare and precious if things don't take a turn for the better.
Cheers for the e-mail.
PS. As you're in Indiana, if you bump into John Mellencamp in the 711 can you get me his autograph. Ta!
