Janet Leach St Ives Studio Pottery Signed Art Vase Leach Studios
American born ceramicist and potter from St Ives (1918 – 1997). Janet initially studied under Shoji Hamada where she travelled to Japan to work with him. After returning to the US from Japan, in 1955 she married Bernard Leach, the noted British studio potter, whom she had earlier studied with. Janet Leach continued to be influenced by Japanese aesthetics in her pottery and ceramics, and her work is still gaining popularity. Janet Leach’s independent spirit ensured that her work was quite different from much of the Leach style. Clearly influenced by the oriental style and form, her work is free flowing and energetic. This vase is a superb example of her work. It has an beautiful hand thrown shape and shows a free flowing design of the glaze. Height: 12.5 cms. Diameter: 11 cms (with variation).
