Near Fine. Slight cover wear, but appears unread. Large 4to: 208pp including chronology, technical notes, and bibliography. The life and work of the most original ceramic artist of the twentieth century. Hans Coper (1920–1981), was an influential British studio potter. His work is often coupled with that of Lucie Rie due to their close association, even though their best known work differs dramatically, with Rie's being more functional and traditional, while Coper's was much more abstract and assuredly non-functional. Coper was born in Chemnitz, Germany, and fled to Britain in 1939. He was interned as an enemy alien, and held in Canada for two years In 1946, with no previous experience in ceramics, he began working as an assistant in the studio of Lucie Rie. By the time he left in 1958 to establish his own studio, he was already well known as a potter in his own right. Illustrated in colour and black-and-white throughout text.
