Leaper, Newlyn

Leaper, Newlyn, set up in 1954, was the first of the four Newlyn potteries that experienced tremendous success in the 1960s.

Eric Leaper's imaginative use of colour and good eye for design combined with some good contacts for retailing and exporting his goods ensured the success of Leaper, Newlyn. At their peak they were using four kilns and had a workforce of six.

Leaper designs stand the test of time and like Poole pottery of the 1960s and 1970s can be appreciated not just as retro but as good designs. The pottery closed in 1980.
