JANET LEACH 1918-1997
Made at St Ives mid 80's

Stoneware,stained black clay body with black glaze (Tenmoku) pours Impressed St Ives and Janet Leach's personal seals.

Bernard Leach met Janet while on a visit to Japan in the early 50's. Janet was working with Hamada at his Mashiko pottery. Janet is the one of the few potters who worked with Bernard to retain her own true voice. Her work owes all to the Japanese influences that she encountered while working in Japan. In her work one sees the influence of Oribe and Bizen, This bottle is very much a statement by Janet of her deep roots in the ceramic traditions of Japan.
