Display artist/maker:

William Marshall

Born: 1923, UK   Died: 2007

Ceramicist. He was the first of the local apprentices to be employed at the Leach Pottery in St Ives, when he joined at the age of 15 in 1938. He remained there for almost four decades, becoming a skilled thrower and, eventually, foreman. After Bernard Leach's death in 1979 he set up his own pottery at Lelant, only a few miles away. In style his work is very close to that of Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada
