Patricia Shone, Winner of the Emmanuel Cooper Prize at Ceramic Art London 2019, works selected for the permanent collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum
The Emmanuel Cooper award is given by The Craft Pottery Charitable Trust which was set up in 1991 under Emmanuel Cooper’s Chairmanship of the CPA to support educational activities associated with ceramic activity across the UK..
For the last 5 years, the Trust has invited a museum with a notable collection of contemporary ceramics to select a piece of work at Ceramic Art London which they would like to acquire for their permanent collection. The Trust buys the work from the potter using a bequest from the estate of the late Emmanuel Cooper and donates it to the museum.
This year the Victoria & Albert Museum was invited to make the choice.
The V&A is such an important place of history and reference. I am still coming to terms with the fact of having my work there. It is humbling and a huge honour to be a small part of the ancient story thread of humanity that is pottery.
