|Ceramicist:||Bernard Leach - View biography for Bernard Leach|
Bernard Leach has had an enduring influence upon the history and development of British ceramics. His approach to making pots was informed by time spent in Japan, working with Japanese potters, and the exchange of ideas and traditions between the two cultures. This pot was made soon after the Second World War, during which Leach had increased the production of 'standard ware' at the St Ives pottery.
