Patrick Leach trained in pottery and ceramics from George Leach and Master Potter Erdman Tuemp, both from Lillooet, who taught him pottery and glazing techniques.

Patrick uses a technique of carving by hand unique designs into hand-made ceramic pieces. These one-of-a-kind finished pieces represent landscapes, geometrics, and scenes from ancient and traditional rock paintings and basket weavings. He has been running his studio since 2008.
