      Dr Emmanuel Cooper OBE (HonDFA) 1938–2012 was a distinguished craftsman, writer, teacher and broadcaster. A potter of international standing, his work is represented in many public collections. 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 in 2002 for services to art. Emmanuel’s contribution to the world of ceramics was hugely significant. This will be celebrated with a touring exhibition of his ceramics and a publication looking at his life in pots – produced by Ruthin Craft Centre in collaboration with the University of Derby.
