Hans Coper, Lucie Rie & Pupils

15 May - 11 July 2020

Influential potter Hans Coper (1920-1981) was a champion of arts education.                                     

His teaching had the same integrity and strength as had his pots; graceful, direct, precisely and sensitively tuned...” 


In 2020, his centenary year, Oxford Ceramics Gallery celebrated this element of Coper’s work with Hans Coper, Lucie Rie and Pupils 


A leader in the development of ceramics in the twentieth century Coper taught at Camberwell and then at Royal College of Art alongside his own teacher and mentor Lucie Rie (1902 - 1995).
