Dr Emmanuel Cooper OBE (HonDFA) was a distinguished craftsman, writer, teacher and broadcaster. A potter of international standing, his work is represented in many public collections, and he was a long-standing member of CAA.

The author of nearly thirty books, he was editor of Ceramic Review, visiting Professor at London's Royal College of Art, and a regular broadcaster on television and radio. He was awarded an OBE for services to art in 2002. 

Emmanuel's contribution to the world of ceramics was hugely significant and CAA is honoured to present the London leg of this touring exhibition of his ceramics. The exhibition was produced by Ruthin Craft Centre in collaboration with the University of Derby and is accompanied by a publication looking at Emmanuel Cooper's life in pots. 

A selection of Emmanuel's works are for sale in this exhibition.

Jill Bryars considers there to be a unique relationship between drawing and using clay. Drawing always comes first; it happens during the process, and will act independently. Itís what drives her.
