I feel exceptionally lucky to have been given this piece of Janet Leach's work.

It's the centenary of Janet Leach's birth today. To celebrate I'm posting this recent find: a pot just under 8cm tall. St Ives and  "JL" marks, with "REPEAT" impressed.

There can be so much drama in her pots.

Although Janet worked at the Leach Pottery from 1955 until her death in 1997, she never adopted the "Leach style".

Here is one of her "wood-fired" pots from the last 10 years of her life. They were not wood-fired as such but I understand that she ruined a number of kilns getting this effect.

She could do some really dramatic work. I have always loved her white work with the flashes of black or brown. This dish is one of the few of hers we have.

I will see if I can dig out some images of her white porcelain.

I found this image taken around 15 years ago. The pots are of unknown vintage.

A variety of Janet Leach pots that I exhibited in the summer of 2019. The tallest is over 40 cm. high.

Note: - I sold the white porcelain vase, at the front, for the second time at the exhibition.
