Scott MARSHALL

Scott has the distinction of being the last apprentice potter to emerge from the Leach Pottery, having started at the age of fifteen in 1951 and serving five years (prior to staying for a further five).  His two uncles were at the Pottery with him - Theresa Norah COPNALL and Kenneth QUICK - alongside David LEACH and Michael LEACH, the two sons of Bernard LEACH.  He learned to throw pots to a precise size and weight and produce a precise replication of domestic items, working from a drawing or photograph in the spirit of creating that which is both functional and beautiful. 

In 1961 he opened the Boscean Pottery in St Just with Richard JENKINS, and built a large oil-fired kiln similar to the Japanese climbing kiln that used to hold 1,500 pots at the Leach Pottery.  He subsequently set to work on his own, using a smaller electric kiln.
