John Leach pestle & mortar 8cm
The eldest grandson of the world-famous potter Bernard Leach continues the family tradition by hand throwing and wood firing a large collection of wonderfully usable stoneware pots. John Leach works at Muchelney, Somerset, in workshops he established in 1965, restoring the original 15th century village pottery.
Leach’s own work shows the influence of English mediaeval pottery; his favourite shapes are substantial and rotund. Pots unglazed externally have green or deep brown glaze inside.
Because these are individual pieces, shapes and glazes may vary. Supplies may fluctuate. A fuller selection will be found at the David Mellor shops.
