A son of potter William MARSHALL who joined him in his new pottery, after the latter retired from the LEACH POTTERY.
From his earliest potting, he has regarded slipware and stoneware of equal importance, and has made both, alongside one another. 'He grew up surrounded, as it were, by Korean and Japanese potters, by figures such as Kosanjin as well as any number of unknown masters, not to mention his father William Marshall. He later studied in depth Flemish and German slipware, and Moravian country pottery alongside that made by such Japanese masters as Hakeme and Karatsui.' (Cornishman, 2011)
