Emmanuel Cooper

The intensity of recent electric blue and acid yellow glazes have threatened to consume all but the essential outlines of Emmanuel Cooperís stylised jugs and bowls. Surface textures counteract first impressions providing intimate detail; trapped bubbles simmer below the surface, erupt into tightly packed craters, or fall as foaming bands resting on concentric throwing rings. Occasionally rims are exposed, defined with oxides, to remind us that each piece is a conscious collaboration between clay form and chemical calculation.
