Leach Pottery pestle and mortar 13cm
This superb collection of reduction fired stoneware comes from the famous pottery established in Cornwall in the 1920s by Bernard Leach. The concept of a range of functional and beautiful everyday tableware made with local clay was central to Leach’s philosophy.
We stocked Leach pottery when David Mellor opened in 1969 and we are now delighted to welcome back a classic of craft history.
Because these are individual pieces, shapes and glazes may vary. Supplies may fluctuate.
The Leach Pottery is considered by many to be the birthplace of British studio pottery. One of the great figures of 20th century art, Bernard Leach played a crucial pioneering role in creating an identity for artist potters across the world. The recently restored Leach Pottery site includes a new museum, created to celebrate the life, work, influences and legacy of Bernard Leach. Exhibition, gallery and shop spaces provide regular shows throughout the year showcasing work by leading regional, national and international studio potters.
