Bernard Leach

Pitcher, stoneware, applied clay motif





Produced in St Ives in Britain, this work is in the style of medieval British pottery. Similarly to Shoji Hamada, Leach was passionate about researching old pottery. The finger markings around the main part of the jug imitate the features of medieval ceramics. It was related with Leach Bar, now at the Rihga Royal Hotel in Nakanoshima, Osaka, founded by Tamesaburo Yamamoto.
