Cape Fear Studios has been holding the Nellie Allen Smith Pottery Competition for 20 years.  Our goal was to give clay artists at first, locally and now nationally an opportunity to compete with their peers. We have been fortunate to have great community support and have been able to invite many accomplished potters to be our judge. 

The following statement is an excerpt from Simon Leach’s website, www.simonleachpottery.com. 

“Look to combine beauty with function in a pot” —Bernard Leach

Growing up surrounded by a family of potters, I draw on those early influences: the work of my Father, (David Leach), and Grandfather, (Bernard Leach), Japanese and Korean art. I have assimilated my surroundings; therefore my work has become a natural expression of what is personal to me. I find the ongoing challenge of discovering my own visual language and voice as a potter both exciting and rewarding. 
It is a lifetime journey.  — SL
