Leach Pottery Standard Ware Egg Cup
Dimensions: 4.5 x 5cm
Leach Standard Ware pottery is thrown on the wheel by the team of production potters, volunteers and apprentices at the Leach Pottery in St Ives, Cornwall. The stoneware clay used is from Doble's claypit in St Agnes, Cornwall - much the same clay as was used in the original Leach Standard Ware production.
Available in two glazes:
Ash - mixed using locally sourced wood ash, this glaze is a soft translucent green, tending towards subtle variations, depending on the ash supplied.
Dolomite - this creamy white glaze is named after the high percentage of the mineral dolomite in the mix. Iron in the clay body comes through, lending the glaze a hint of blue.
Please note: Every Leach Pottery item is handmade and may vary in shape and colour from the item pictured. Due to the unpredictability of the firing process and materials, all glaze finishes are unique and can vary significantly.
