Seasalt Daffodils window display

Our March window theme is Daffodils and window dressers  Kathryn and Tara have been busy making lovely Cornish daffodils.

Kathryn and Tara made the daffs using tiny pompoms of wool,  attached them onto the end of bamboo sticks and then wrapped tissue paper petals around the pom pom.  Each daffodil has its own unique name, which has been stamped onto the luggage tags.

The inspiration for the window came from Ron Scamp, a daffodil breeder in Falmouth. You can read his story here

seasalt and leach pottery launch unique creative opportunity

Neil & Julia

Seasalt Joint Managing Director, Neil Chadwick, with Julia Twomlow, Leach Pottery Director

We are excited to announce that we are launching a Seasalt Bursary where we will be offering one lucky person the enviable opportunity to train and study as a potter at the famous Leach Pottery in St Ives.

Julia Twomlow, Leach Pottery Director, said, “The Leach Pottery has always attracted potters, students and apprentices from across the world. We want to invite someone with no experience or skills in pottery but bags of enthusiasm and creativity and provide them with the best possible training experience to become a fully-fledged potter.”

Founded in 1920 by Bernard Leach and Japanese artist, Shoji Hamada, the Leach Pottery is now a UK charity. Alongside promoting the work and life of Bernard Leach, it also works to further the development of studio pottery and encourage young talent through its studio and education programme. With long-held strong links to the creative community, particularly, in St Ives, we are delighted to provide backing for this innovative 12-month scheme.

Seasalt Joint Managing Director, Neil Chadwick, said, “We’ve always loved and been inspired by St. Ives and its artistic heritage. We’ve been involved with the Leach to some degree for many years and the Seasalt Bursary feels like the next exciting step together.”

The Leach Pottery will be inviting applications for the scheme very soon but will be looking for someone who is available for 12 months and has natural enthusiasm and skill. We are providing the bursary towards the establishment of this position on an annual basis.

The Seasalt Bursary coincides with the launch of a unique collection of tableware created by the Leach Pottery for us which will be available from mid April in selected shops and online www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk

All of our prints are designed by us. They’re inspired by the Cornish landscape, the colours and flora we see on country walks and the maritime dotted vistas that hug the coast in Cornwall. They’re unique to us; you won’t find them anywhere else.

Each season we create a fresh collection and this spring/summer they’re inspired by the area around our design studios in Falmouth. Locations such as Maenporth beach with views to Pendennis point, and sweet flower meadow walks to Budock Church.
