Soon after arriving in St. Ives and setting up his pottery, Bernard Leach became an active member of the artistic community. In the late 1920's the St. Ives Society of Artists set up the first exhibition space in Porthmeor Studios and in 1949 the Penwith Society of Arts was formed with Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Bernard Leach among its members. In 1974 Bernard gave up potting and with failing eyesight moved to No 4 Barnaloft overlooking Porthmeor Beach where he continued his writing. To celebrate his ninetieth birthday a retrospective exhibition was held at the Victoria and Albert Museum.Bernard Leach died in 1979 at the age of 92.
