Bernard Leach

No 30: Bottle vase, 1970 (P.75.99)

Bernard Leach produced this well-known, tall stoneware bottle in his late career at St Ives. Its pale cream-grey form is the perfect vehicle for the pairs of leaping fish which are pained between horizontal bands of brushed iron pigment. The body is thus divided up almost architecturally into two classical friezes of decoration.
