Alexander Leckie studied ceramics at The Glasgow School of Art before moving to Australia in 1955. In 1956, he started teaching a new pottery course at the South Australian School of Arts and Crafts. In 1962, Leckie stopped teaching and worked full-time as a potter in his own studio, before returning to Scotland in 1966 to take up a position as senior lecturer at The Glasgow School of Art, where he remained for twenty years.
