David Leach

Post by studio-pots on April 23rd 2013, 8:34 pm

We do have a thread in this section for pots produced at the Lowerdown Pottery, which was set up by David Leach in 1956, but no thread for his individual work produced there or elsewhere by him so here goes.

A squat stoneware vase, 4.4 inches/11.2cm tall: -



Personal LD seal and Lowerdown Cross seal (L+)

The next geometric patterned stoneware vase was made at Loughborough during the time that he was a part time lecturer there during the early 1960s.



So a rare mark: -

Interesting that you leave the exhibition label on philpot. I used to take them off contemporary work I bought but don't anymore as I realise they are part of the history of the pot

Not only did Bill Ismay do that he also took photographs of where the pieces he bought were placed in an exhibition. He got an MBE for his efforts.

Actually I bought that one at the Rev Norman Smith studio pottery sale at Chichester last year. I have kept the label on purely in the desperately vague hope that I might trace what exhibition it came from.
