Scott Cooper

This week I reconnected with potter Scott Cooper from Indiana. I had found Scott's website years ago and really enjoyed the pots he was making. It turned out that he had a treadle wheel made by Mark Polglase. I had been wanting a treadle for sometime so I contacted Scott to see how he liked his. Of course he had good reviews on the wheel. I called Mark up and ordered one. I love it and as Scott said to me I couldn't imagine making pots without it.

If you get a chance visit Scott's website, the pots are really fantastic, strong forms with simple, sometimes playful decoration. The website itself is first class too as Scott was once a full time web designer. There is a ton of information here including photos, sketches, recipes, process photos, and some well written essays under 'Rare Earth'.
