Leo Hallissey trained as an Architect in London and worked for 26 years on schemes mainly in the Inner London Area.
Pottery found him in 1990 and he began throwing traditional pots, initially striving for perfection but later developing an interest in the marks and changes energy imparts on clay.
Various courses in ceramics at Cornwall College between 1998 and 2002 (where he gained a distinction at HNC) brought him in contact with students and tutors exploring the diverse world of ceramics. Many are still in regular contact.

The work Leo does is often experimental but he still feels restrained and in control, although a little schizophrenic at times. He works in his St Ives studio.
Leo joined Creftow artists co-operative in 2002 and shows some of his work at the Gallery in Helston.

Exhibition venues include Morley College in London, Morvah Gallery here in Cornwall and at his home in St Ives.
