Bernard Leach was as renowned in Japan and the East as in Europe and America, both as an artist-craftsman and as a thinker. His interpretation of the traditions of the Orient in the making of pots – and in evolving a philosophy of life – was a lodestar for many potters in the West. ‘Beyond East and West’, first published in 1978, is more than an autobiography. Full of sharply-etched and amusing recollections, it contains much of Leach’s deeper thought and a great deal too about the practical application of his ideas.
