Love Muchelney pottery - that toasted clay effect is so attractive. Here are a couple in my collection:

Here's a nice teabowl I've just acquired with John Leach's personal mark. Dated 2004 (most helpfully). 9.1cm (height)

Byron Temple

Post by skipposal on March 13th 2013, 9:26 pm

Just seen a couple of possible Byron Temple pots in the ID thread so thought I'd post this Muchelney beaker I got in an auction lot recently. It was one of a pair the other sold to an American buyer. I tentatively identified the other mark as by Byron Temple given that BSPM says he worked at Muchelney as well as Leach St Ives in the 1958-61 period. However, other sources including a research essay by Rob Barnard I found online disagreed. Anyone have any idea?

Wheelthrown fine white stoneware faceted beaker. Toasted unglazed exterior, greenish speckled glaze inside. 10.2cm (height)

I have a Byron Temple vase which looks very much like a Mulcheney one.Plus I previously owned another Byron Temple vase-and have seen one other in auction- which had John Leach's atypical 'Black smoke' dry glaze.Without the Byron Temple mark,you would have assumed it was a John Leach.
So,yes definitely,he did work at Mulcheney.

SP has kindly confirmed the ID via John Leach himself. Byron didn't work there but did visit and make a few pots. Means this one is very rare. I've let the American buyer of the other one know.

Early Muchelney Pottery teapot or coffee pot
(Happy to say this has gone back to John Leach at Muchelney).

Muchelney Pottery bottle. Stamped on the base, plus ‘England’. I believe it dates from the 60s-70s when John Leach first set up the potter and was oil firing, before turning to wood firing.
