I have always struggled to keep a diary - try as I might, it is a discipline which has eluded me. I love stationery so I have many partially filled notebooks and journals on my shelves and desk, but I quickly get distracted and move on to the next. So please bear with me as I start to write this blog - it isn't something that comes naturally.
I also feel that a Leach Pottery blog is long overdue. I have been in post here as Director for 5 years now, since the pottery was reopened to the public following the restoration in 2008. Throughout that time so much has happened - so many changes, developments, setbacks, triumphs and crises - but there has been little done to track that story. So I suppose I should start with where we are now on this slightly rainy summer day in July 2013.
