Emmanuel Cooper

(British 1938-2012)

Emmanuel Cooper was a leading British potter, who also became widely known as a writer, teacher, editor, curator and campaigner for gay rights. He was a member of the crafts council and co-founded Ceramic Review with Eileen Lewenstein in 1970, where he remained editor for 40 years.

His work explores ‘objects that relate both directly and indirectly to function’, primarily focused on Bowl and Jug forms but with some exploration of other forms towards the later part of his career. His technically highly proficient glazing methods produced vivid colours and textures that bring his forms to life.
