Beautiful lustrous glaze on this Lowerdown Jug added to my collection last year off ebay. 14.5 cm (height)




Less excited about this vase by Jeremy Leach at Lowerdown that I got in an auction lot recently. Horrible white clay with firing cracks and so-so glaze - no wonder no-one wanted it! 11.6cm (height)

Jeremy can do some good stuff at times but I just wanted to share his sales pitch to me several years ago - it was "Buying my work means you get the Leach name at a fraction of the price".

I wanted to add that the couple of times over the years I've chatted with Jeremy he was really good, helpful, informative & patient. He was more than happy to help talk with no pressure at all. On a third occasion when I was there, talking with a helper, he was grumpy & dismissive. Everyone has off-days.  Happy

My understanding has been that a simple Lowerdown Cross stamp indicates that it may have been potted by David or Jeremy but equally it may have been by anyone else there.

Am I wrong in that?

the Lowerdown cross mark was used by David Leach and the foxglove decor I believe is his as well , but I suppose others could have made them too robert tinnyunt for one .

David sold me this one also. he was a gentleman. He took his time to point out where he had left a thumb-print in the glaze. To be honest, for me, that added to the interest.

David's son, Simon, told me that he did alot of the foxglove decoration whenever he was visiting.

The Lowerdown cross was used on functional ware and on decorative pieces, which were sold for less than pieces with David's personal seal.

I did buy a pot once from David that just had the Lowerdown cross mark and he said that he had thrown it and decorated it. He added that he thought it was rather good so he should have put his personal seal on it as well and then he could have charged me more!

So basically the Lowerdown cross mark tells you that it was made at the pottery and could have been thrown and decorated by the same person or a different person. Going back this would have included John Maltby and Tim Andrews as well as Simon, Jeremy and Robert Tinnyunt amongst others.

Interesting to note that the foxglove was painted by different hands , Iv'e just looked at the 5 I have and although all good , some are a tad neater than others , it's not an easy thing to do unless you practice quite a bit .

John was there for 3 years in the early 1960s and other potters who worked there and subsequently went on to start their own potteries include Mary Rich, Elizabeth Raeburn and Warwick Parker.
