Bernard Leach original Standard Ware pottery was featured in the 1959 Living Today exhibition and is still being made by Leach Pottery today.

Leach Standard Ware pottery is thrown on the wheel by an international team of production potters, volunteers and apprentices. They use stoneware clay from Doble's claypit in St Agnes, Cornwall - much the same clay as was used in the original Leach Standard Ware production.

Their range of stoneware glazes are selected and developed for their quality and colour and are laboratory tested for food safety. The pots are fired to 1280 degrees Celsius, resulting in a dense and durable product. During the firing, the amount of oxygen in the kiln's atmosphere is reduced and the flame pulls oxygen from the clay and glazes instead, infusing the glazes with deep, rich, iron tones. The porcelain Leach standard ware is decorated with a Ying Ching glaze and the rim of each piece is then brushed with iron oxide. Due to the unpredictability of the firing process and materials, all glaze finishes are unique and can vary significantly.

TENMOKU Originating in China, this iron-rich glaze recipe provides a deep black finish, breaking to red-brown where the glaze is thinner.

Materials: Stoneware clay
Dimensions: 28.5cm x 10cm
