Patrick Leach is from the St’át’imc First Nation Territory. Raised in the T’ít’q’et community near Lillooet B.C., he is of the P’egpig’7lha (Frog) clan.

His introduction to pottery happened in 2008 when he began to work under the mentorship of Matthew Jacob, a well known BC based aboriginal photographer. During this time of transition from being a photographer, Patrick began working on his second artistic love: pottery – a medium not found in Northwest Coast art.  He was greatly influenced by his mother’s cultural heritage in Quebec where pottery is in great abundance.

Under the close eye of Erdman Tuemp, a local pottery master, Patrick has learned how to combine the processes and styles of both Erdman and renowned Kwakwaka’wakw artist Steve Smith.  Drawing from his creative mind and steady hand, Patrick places the final touches by carefully carving landscapes, geometrical designs and scenes from ancient traditional rock paintings and basket weaving. Each piece is a one of a kind creation.

All of Patrick Leach’s pottery is handmade (porcelain) then hand-carved.  Some of the pottery is carved on the inside and several have glazes (two firing for the glaze on the inside) and all pots have a clear glaze on the outside.

As an emerging artist, Patrick Leach’s new earthly style is quickly becoming recognized for its beauty, fine finishing, and intricate designs.  These individualistic creations will easily become much sought-after as his career continues to progress.
