Prue Cooper’s work celebrates friendship and the sharing of simple pleasures. The warm directness of slipware, the physicality of ceramic, and the simple fact that a large dish for food automatically implies sociability and daily life are all essential parts of the whole.

Some dishes are inscribed with quotations, and the lettering is an integral part of the design, in the same way that the words are integral to a song. The cast of characters in the designs also comments on life. The dishes are glazed with a food-safe honey glaze, and are dishwasher proof and gently oven proof.
