Michael Leach was Bernard Leach's younger son, born in 1913, two years after his brother David.
He spent a short time at the Leach Pottery before serving in the army during the Second World War. His pottery talents were not wasted in the army; he set up two potteries in East Africa to make utensils for the troops.
