It is not really correct to call this one of Janet's Bizen-style pots, as typical Bizen ware is unglazed. I know that this vase only has a little glaze but she did make unglazed wares in the Bizen style also. I say style as the type of stoneware she used was not absolutely correct and they weren't wood fired. What she produced were interesting pots and knackered kilns.

I'll dig out an image.

Just had word from Joanna Wason about the large lidded pot above , she told me she hasn't seen anything like it before , she worked with Janet for the last 9 yrs and told me this must have been made in the early 80's or even before she hasn't seen these handles on an upright piece before , she said it's stoneware from John Dobles pit St Agnes which she wedge iron into, the glaze is stone & ash , if anybody can find a similar piece that would be great , Ta Ed

Oh I'm not sure Denby, I saw Eds coffee mug (the first post on this thread) and Studio said they came in 3 colourways. Mine looks the same shape so is probably right.

Hello,
please does anyone know if there is a resource/list of the stamps the individual potters used at the leach? Shrugs I'm asking because I have a pot marked with the leach stamp and L: any ideas?
Thank you

studio-pots wrote:This mug was part of the Standard Ware range that was produced at the Leach Pottery up until Bernard Leach's death in 1979. In an illustrated catalogue of Leach Standard Ware that I possess from 1975 this was one of three mugs produced at the time and was called a "Coffee Mug" with a retail price of 90p. They were available in 3 different glazes referred to as A, B and C. A - Black to rust tenmoku. B - Mottled grey brown, C- Pale celadon green (as above).

The Standard Ware range was made by the students and apprentices so cannot be attributed to any individual potter. However, they were certainly never thrown by Bernard.
