As a woman in an industry run by men, it was Susie Cooper's ability to anticipate the mood of the day and understand market trends that enabled her to keep ahead of her competitors. She produced modern pots at affordable prices and provided customers who possessed exceptional taste, but little money, with well-designed, practical and attractive pottery.

Cooper's pots became symbolic of the new domestic life enjoyed by the suburban middle classes. Her career spanned seven decades and a staggering four thousand patterns ranging from the jazz modern colours of the Art Deco period to the Pop Art of the swinging sixties.  Aspects of her life are brought together with the unknown, including research material and information from her family. 

Essays include: Women Designers in Context; Unknown Susie Cooper; The Susie Cooper Style; Royal Connections; Pottery Patronage; Susie Cooper and Wedgwood.
