Hans Coper was an influential German-born 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. Rie, however, generally put flowers in her pots by Coper, as if to state her opinion that they were functional.
