Leach Standard Ware Small Mug
The black colour is achieved with an iron rich tenmoku glaze.
Standard Ware is a collection that was first issued in 1946 as a way to offer accessible handmade pottery. Works that were functional, well made that could be sold in the surrounding area.
This mug is hand thrown at the Leach Pottery in St. Ives. The clay comes from Doble’s Clay pit in St Agnes, Cornwall - much the same clay as was used in the original Leach Standard Ware production.
These pieces are functional, pure and also robust.
