Emmanuel Cooper

Not mine but asking for a friend called Geoffrey. I think it looks like porcelain but he's not too sure.

Has he had it long?

The glazes are the same as Christine-Ann Richard's recent work...not that that will help.

The 2nd mark remind me a lot of Emmanuel Cooper, I don't know much about his pots, but assume you'd have already ruled him out?

Thanks for your suggestions. The platter does look like Christine-Anne's work but not like Emmanuel Cooper's but the marks aren't right.

I've asked him to describe the mark on the right but no reply yet.

Apologies to you Potty. Geoffrey thinks that the mark on the right is a rounded backed E so it looks like it is an Emmanuel Cooper piece, although not that recent. I just don't associate this type of glaze with him.

So that probably dates it to c 1980. Cheeky

It's 11 inches (28 cm) in diameter.

Excellent

He did play around with glazes like this one, here are some of his glaze test samples:

Now you're getting all technical. Is that from one of his books?

To be honest I've never had any interest in his work and never bought a piece even to sell on so this is all new to me. Don't think I'll be converted.

The marks are as Ed had mentioned, so c1980 when I think he made standard type forms as did most. His glaze trials where issued in his book "The Potters Book of Glaze Recipes". Potty shows a link which offers test tiles for the glaze I think somewhere amongst the red/whites. I think his work has a certain following and since he's now not with us prices for his work have rocketed!!.....so nice find.

You are correct about prices of his work and him having a following.

One of my customers has a large collection, which I've seen, and there were a few bowls in the collection that impressed me. However, you know I like wood-fired pots so they're not really me.

I have advised Geoffrey accordingly.

I like some of his stuff, but think it's overrated.

P.S. SP I'm keeping score, think this puts us at Potty 1 SP 72. Big Laughter
