Porcelain Coffee Beaker White
Glazed porcelain mug, produced at the renowned Leach Pottery in St Ives, Cornwall.
Following a visit to the pottery last year, we were keen to add a range of these beautiful handmade mugs to our store. We love the depth of colour and the tactile marks left by the maker's touch, signs that can only found on a truly hand crafted item.
- Measurements 9.5 x 7.5 cm
- Hand thrown in Cornwall.

Known for it's lightness and translucency, porcelain is lighter and more delicate than stoneware, but just as strong and durable. This item is decorated with a Chinese style Ying Ching glaze and the rim of each piece is brushed with iron oxide.
Leach Standard Ware pottery is thrown on the wheel by the latest generation of production potters and apprentices, based at the Leach Pottery in St Ives, Cornwall.
The Leach is widely considered to be the birthplace of British studio pottery. Bernard Leach founded the pottery in 1920 with Japanese potter Shoji Hamada.
Following Bernard Leach's death in 1979, the Leach Pottery was handed over to the Bernard Leach Trust, which manages a museum dedicated to his legacy; as well as a working pottery producing a new range of standard ware and training a new generation of studio potters.
