'Emmanuel Cooper: Connections & Contrasts' with Edmund de Waal & Professor Simon Olding (ed. Dr Matthew Tyas, 2015)

15.00

A high quality Leach Pottery publication that supported and enriched our 2015 Emmanuel Cooper exhibition.

It begins with a foreword by Edmund de Waal that provides a sense of the topography relating to the figures of Bernard Leach and Emmanuel Cooper as advocates, writers, and makers. This is followed by Simon Olding’s essay charting some of the connections and contrasts between Bernard and Emmanuel: their careers shared a similar trajectory, but their social backgrounds, and the site and outcomes of their practice, were quite different.

The following chapter discusses the curatorial approach to the exhibition and surveys items from the Emmanuel Cooper Archive, including early drawings and shots of him making, before presenting a range of work from his later years and a photographic portrait of Emmanuel in his absence. This portrait, by Aileen Harvey, shows something of Emmanuel’s seemingly chaotic workspace and practice, untouched since his death.

A selected biography is then followed by our acknowledgments: we would especially like to thank The Hargreaves and Ball Trust for their support in helping us publish this book.

We hope that you enjoy reading about Emmanuel Cooper as much as we have enjoyed getting to know him through our exhibition and publication.
