Michelle Leach is a Birmingham-based potter. She and her family live in Crestwood. Michelle creates from her home studio, which works out well because it allows her to keep an eye on her four kiddos.
Michelle holds an Art degree from Mississippi College, but she credits her love for pottery to the years she spent as a High School ceramics teacher. She is grateful for opportunities to share her simple and functional ceramics with her community.
Each piece is not only built by Michelle but finished with her personal glaze recipes. One of the reasons that Michelle loves being a potter is that each piece doesn’t have to be perfect. The fingerprints, slight variations, and wobbly lines are actually what makes each piece beautiful. Each piece of Michelle Leach Pottery is truly one of a kind. Michelle simply enjoys making lovely things out of clay, and she hopes you will enjoy her work as well.
