Emmanuel Cooper is a distinguished working potter, Former editor of Ceramic
Review and Visiting Professor, Ceramic and Glass, at the Royal College of
work is influenced by the urban city environment, by such things as hard,
textured surfaces, by street lighting, traffic lights, endless movement
and sense of urgency. Colours are those of roads, pavements and building,
textures those we encounter in the metropolis. The pots are thrown on the
wheel, but more recently they are hand-built by coiling. All the work is
fired to 1260˚C in an electric kiln.
