About 300 years ago I graduated with a BA(Hons) in 3D Design, Wood, Metal, Ceramics & Glass from Manchester Metropolitan University (specialising in Ceramics and Wood). After university, Ceramics became my main field of practice & I made stuff for a bit whilst working as an Art Technician. Then I decided to complete a PGCE (about 297 years ago) and taught Art & Design at secondary schools for 15 years, during this time my own artistic practice took a back seat (and I had some babies too!).
In 2013 I made the bold decision to concentrate on my own work in ceramics and move away from mainstream teaching, then in 2015, Abigail Leach Ceramics was born. Currently I have a teeny tiny studio at home in Wiltshire and teach regular weekly Ceramics classes to Adults in Cirencester at NBA.
