Hans Coper

By Richard Farrell, Sep 15 2015 01:14PM

My dad has always been a huge admirer of Hans Coper. This is partly due to the fact that Coper lived and worked (for a short period) in Digswell, Hertfordshire. This is close to where my dad lives. He was delighted recently to have added to his collection this fantastic piece by Coper that was made during his time at this location. This piece was given as a wedding gift to a friend who has now sold it to my dad. It is an unusual shape......I have seen similar pieces but none that are the exact same shape. The colour is stunning. This is a really great piece. I am jealous of my dad and wish it was mine but unfortunately I cannot afford to buy a Coper pot with the prices that his work currently fetch!
