Abbott and Holder Ltd : Prue Cooper in Museum St. London: 14 November – 24 December 2013

A large exhibition of Prue Coopers work, just in time for Christmas, in a central London location, just opposite the British Museum and also close to the Contemporary Ceramics Centre. Well worth a visit with the added bonus, if you like watercolours to see Abbott and holders excellent selection.

Prue Cooper on making her dishes:

The dishes are slabs of clay pressed into plaster moulds, like making jam tarts. They are red earthenware, decorated with slips (“slip” just describes sloppy clay); the ground colour is brushed, the lettering extruded (like writing Happy Birthday on a cake), and the images are transferred off paper cut-outs which have been brushed with slip, and the internal lines drawn in with a porcupine quill. The dishes are dish-washer proof, microwavable, gently oven-proof, and food-safe.
