50% Cornish Clay from St Agnes 50% Ball Clay from Devon

Glazed clay mug. Designed and made in Cornwall by the world-famous Leach Pottery.

Our exclusive 'Leach for Seasalt' collection celebrates our joint love for simple, beautiful style and true craftsmanship.

Our pots and mugs are made using locally sourced clay from St Agnes in Cornwall and hand thrown in the Leach workshop.

This type of pottery is known as stoneware. It’s hardwearing, so if you treat it with care it should last a lifetime.

The full blue glaze colourway is finished with a dolomite glaze, which was used at the Leach Pottery in the 1950s.

The brushed glaze colourway has an ash glaze. As a natural ingredient, the ash used in the glaze can vary, so the colour of the glaze may be quite different from one mug to another; each mug is unique.

This product is handmade so sizes may vary slightly.

Unfortunately we are unable to deliver this product internationally.

Fantastic

My daughter loves a real pottery mug to drink coffee from and so I have been hunting for a good quality pottery mug. I found this one from Seasalt combining Leach pottery with Seasalt and was delighted with it. She loves it. The colour was darker green than the picture but it is a thing of beauty. Delivery was efficient and packaging excellent.

Disappointed

I’d been looking at these mugs for a while and eventually ordered two however when they came I didn’t feel the standard of finish was good enough for the price. I accept that you will never get them perfect or matching as that’s the beauty of them being hand made however the glaze was missing on three patches similar in size to the logo stamp on the side . I returned them but will look when I’m next in store to select my own off the self.

Don't ship to Australia

I wanted to buy more of these before Xmas but they no longer ship to Australia. Why oh why? How will I complete my set? Why does Seasalt treat us this way?

Dear Mug crazy,
Thanks for your review of the Leach Mug. Sadly Seasalt made the difficult decision to cease overseas delivery of the Leach Pottery. A number of beautiful items arrived smashed or damaged, during transportation.
If you’d like to discuss further, please call our friendly customer service team on 01326 640075 or pop onto Live Chat on our website at www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Love the mug, but mug glaze not as expected

I actually put the brushed glazed leach mug on my Christmas list, but I am a bit disappointed that it's nothing like the picture here on the website. I loved the white rim and white on the inside of the mug, however, the one i received as a gift is just greeny brown all over with a white slash across the middle. Practically, its lovely, but I think you should change the picture or actually give the white rimmed mug a different name, otherwise you will continually disappoint people as it's a lot of money to spend on an item for it to be so very different.

Dear Katie,

Thanks for your review of the Leach Mug, we're sorry to hear that the colouring is not quite what you expected by looking on our website.

Our Leach mugs are all hand-made by Leach in St Ives. Therefore, they're all unique so although the same colours are used. They will also vary in colouring and pattern slightly.

Best wishes,
Seasalt

Definitely a problem with the glaze crazing

Like several other reviewers, I must unfortunately report that despite very careful handling (no dishwasher or microwave; no dropping) the glaze on these has crackled. Too bad, because they could be terrific. What a sad state of things, when Leach produces poor quality goods, sold dearly.

Leach Mugs

I bought a pair of these online to be sent as a gift directly to friends, having seen them in the local shop and thought them extremely covetable. The look, feel and weight of them is a pleasure.

The friends were delighted and put them into use straight away.

However, I have since taken note of another reviewers comment on the glaze crackling so quickly. I will pass this on to my friends.

Gorgeous but...

I bought 2 of these mugs, after I couldn't take it any more in the sale. I had wanted to try them for ages. The full glaze looks exactly as pictured, the other mug doesn't have a white lip, but is mainly a wood nymph greeny/brown colour except for the brushed glaze part. It is still lovely, and both are gorgeous to look at, especially with their bumpy even exterior. I have only used the full glaze so far, and the handle is perfect to hold, secure and nicely sized. It makes me want to drink.
Capacity wise it's around 400ml or more, so perfect for those who bought the older seasalt coffee cups but thought they were too small. Try this for size.

BUT, after less than a week of use, the base on the inside is crazed all over - it has been looked after like a precious heirloom, handwashed with care, no dishwasher and certainly no microwave. So why? Is this normal for these mugs? Does it mean the base will crack? :( And I SO love it...

Perfect pottery!

This mug is stunning, but don't you just love all things St Ives!! Also love the idea of the Seasalt Bursary scheme, so important to preserve Cornish cultural heritage.

Disappointing

Looked at these online for months then ordered two, one with brushed glaze and one plain white. The brushed glaze pattern wasn't at all how it looks in the photo online and was unattractive. The plain white one wasn't as good in real life either. Returned them both and got a refund.

Dear Jo,
Thank you for reviewing the Leach mugs. Each mug is handmade and hand glazed so they’re all a little different. If you’d like to choose your own, many of our stores stock them so if there’s a Seasalt store near to you, do pop in.
Best wishes,
Seasalt

Disappointed twice

I ordered two mugs of differing finish. The plain mug was perfect, however the brushed glaze mug arrived with crazed glaze and an unsightly brown blob on the outside. Sent pictures and SEASALT agreed to send a replacement. I've just opened the parcel and again the mug is crazed all over. Am very disappointed as these mugs are a gift. Will return asking for replacement in a different finish.

Leach pottery mugs

There is a very good 'feel' to these mugs. They are hard wearing, well made yet have a fine rim which is pleasant to drink from. Being stoneware they also keep tea and coffee hot for a long time. The subtle glazes are lovely and the mug has been in constant use since I bought it.

Pottery mugs

I ordered 3 pairs of different designs to give as Christmas gifts, I must admit they are really lovely mugs, quite a unique style, I might have to have some for myself. Unfortunately 2 arrived broken, and after contacting Seasalt they sent me replacements very quickly.

The packaging was delightful and gave much pleasure.

Leach pottery mugs

I had coveted these mugs for some before buying, as £20 seems like a lot to spend on a mug. They are however really lovely and I think worth they money. Their shape and weight makes them very satisfying to hold and drink out of and the glaze is simple but beautiful.

Love these! Beautiful to hold and drink from. Will definitely save up to buy more. Colour is bluer on the inside more greeny on the outside.

instant favourite

I resisted these for a long time as they are not cheap, but am so glad I took the plunge. The two I ordered arrived safely by transatlantic mail and are stunningly beautiful -- the online photos don't do them justice. I also love how they feel in the hand -- very nice weight and shape. There's no problem of a rough rim mentioned by another reviewer, though I did notice that on a couple I looked at in a Seasalt store in Cornwall. I have splurged and ordered two more, as well as a couple of the slightly smaller coffee mugs, as there's no going back to cheap ones after these beauties!

Mug shot

I was pleased with my mug. Keeps my coffee hotter for longer and also nice to drink out of...

Very nice to drink out of

These are really nice mugs to drink from - solid without feeling thick or clunky, and have an incredibly nice feel to them. I was attracted to them because of the lovely bluish shade in the pictures - the ones that arrived are much more brownish green, so I try to put them next to things that will make them look blue. But they are very very nice. I may have to get some more...

Rustic mugs with lots of character. Will be ordering more. Have up cycled the jutes as hanging organisers in my pantry and they look fab. Chuffed to bits.

Disappointed

I'm a hobby potter. Considering the price of the mugs I expected handcrafted perfection. The mugs had both a slight groove on the rim where the lips touch the mug while drinking... not nice. The handles wheren't attached smooth enough to the mug. The glazing looks better on the webside and a bit flat in reality. But the mugs have a good size, are nice and light and snug in the palm. Too pricy. Sorry, they had to go back.
