London’s Victoria & Albert Museum has acquired a rare ceramic bowl by the influential post-war potter, Hans Coper. The work, which dates back to the 1950s, was in danger of being exported, but the V&A was able to secure the piece thanks to a successful fundraising campaign. The bowl was acquired in memory of Annabel Freyberg, the former arts editor of the Evening Standard, who passed away in 2013. The V&A is home to twelve other Coper works.
