Footnotes

  • This early form with sgraffito design is typical of Coper's early career. Having only been introduced to pottery in 1946 through joining Lucie Rie's then button factory at Albion Mews, by the time of exhibiting at the Festival of Britain in 1951, Coper's work was beginning to earn acclaim. The early formation of his distinctive style, as seen in this example, saw him awarded the gold medal a year later from when this pot was produced at the X Triennale, Milan 1954, for a pot of globular footed form.
