Leonard has been creating his unique ceramic work for over thirty years. He discovered clay at the age of twenty two whilst making a living as an Engineer. Working in clay birthed a creative passion that developed into a profession, and in 1976 he took over the Claypits Pottery in Ewenny, just outside Bridgend in South Wales. Working in this idyllic setting Leonard has continued to produce his very individual pieces which explore, amongst other subject matter, the human form, choice and the influence of the establishment.

He has shown his work within Wales and UK: London, Bristol, Bath and in Europe: Germany and France. Also in the last few years his work has been well received in America.

He is currently working on a new project for exhibition.
