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.

Yes that was me, sorry if it was wrong and I can move it back. Sounded more like a question?

Embarrassed

The England mark is found on some but not all of the Standard Ware range. My guess would be that there would be no need for the mark if the wares were sold from the Leach Pottery but if supplied to retail outlets (and some outside of the UK) then the England mark would be used.

Vase by Jason Wason (I think), would be good if someone could confirm this for me.

Decorated pin dish with St Ives mark and England. Any idea of age and is the decor distinctive enough to tie it down to any individual?

The vase is an individual piece by Jason Wason made during his time at the Leach Pottery (1976 - 1981) and the dish is probably a Standard Ware individual butter dish. Likely to be from the 1960s. The glaze looks like the "mottled grey brown" from their Standard Ware range of glazes. Less common than the tenmoku or celadon but that's about it.
