Muchelney Pottery (standard ware) Empty Byron Temple

Post by skipposal 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.

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.

Suppose by the lack of replies this is stumping the experts. I tried all the avenues to track it down but as of yet no ideas

It isn't the usual way that people working there were allowed to mark their individual work. Therefore, it might be a code for the stoneware body mix that was being used and marked to see how it fired compared with the usual stoneware body.

The problem is, its probably unlikely that we could provide you with much more information than you already have. Mulcheney standard ware was always very uniform, and this would have been a personal piece, and would normally have a personal mark. Probably by John Leach himself, as he was the one who who made the bigger personal pieces. I have had a similar looking one myself in the past.
But after that? Why it has no personal mark? The initials might possibly refer to a glaze code or a new style indication, but that would be speculation.
Where did you get it from? What size is it? Further details might possibly help.

I’ve not seen a mark like that before so I think glaze code is most likely

Usually clay body recipe mixes are denoted by an incised code and glaze codes are written on after glazes are applied i.e. not incised.

Nick Rees, Mark Melbourne, John Leach, Jeremy Leach, and Ben Leach have all potted at Muchelney but without a mark it’s impossible to say which individual made it. I guess it was a commission and maybe a set were made and they all had a hand in them
