Leach Pottery standardware. Large Z bowl


Z bowls were among the finest of the standard ware produced by the pottery in the 1960s. An example of one of these bowls is in the Tate collection. Also known as 'Sparrow on a branch', the bowls have a stylized 'z' figure in iron in varying degrees of thickness, and the mixed ash glazes create a wonderful degree of textural and chromatic variety. Leach pottery domestic ware ceased to be made after Leach's death at the end of the 1970s.
