Just got this early earthenware piece from Paul Rice's recent show of Michael Leach's work. Gorgeous glazes.

Welcome to the Forum, Joanna. It would be good to see an image of the Yelland jug as well as the mark.

When Michael first went to Yelland (1956) he used red earthenware like his brother David did over in Bovey but I don't know when he changed over to stoneware.

My guess would be around 1961 like his brother.

Regarding, Clive Bowen, he trained with Michael at Yelland from 1966 to 69 before setting up at Shebbear, where he still remains.

Other potters of note, who trained at Yelland, are his son Philip, his daugher in law, Frannie, Harry Juniper from 1956 to 1961 and my friend, Keiko Hasegawa.

Is this Yelland? It doesn't  match the other Y mark. I'm assuming it's an earlier mark as the book shows one in a square, but, font-wise, it seems to have them the wrong way round, as the main mark is in a circle.

I think it must be a partial square, so a rare example of Michael Leach's other Y mark.

Michael Leach was the interesting one you never hear much. He was obviously highly intelligent going to Cambridge University to study Biology, and then some years teaching. He returned to the St Ives pottery in 1939, and after that spent the rest of his life making pottery.
His work always seems good to Very good indeed. But It never ever seemed to reach the GOSH WOW! heights that best of Bernard and David's work could do. The quiet one that always seems to get ignored in the Leach pottery history.
