Lucie Rie 1902-1995
Dame Lucie Rie was an Austrian-born British studio potter. Her early ceramics  incorporated  the  aesthetics  of  Wiener  Werkstätte  and Bauhaus Modernism. She emigrated from Nazis’ Austria to England in  1938, i nitially working in the glass button factory to make a living but later produced fine ceramic buttons in her studio, where in 1946 the  German-born  war-emigre   Hans Coper joined to work. With his help,  she  found  her  way  to  follow  her own modernist style. Their strong friendship lasted until Coper’s death in  1981. She developed a wide range of glaze effects on both stoneware and porcelain . Her sophisticated, often brightly coloured thrown pots are endowed with beauty beyond time and place. She was made Dame Commander of the  Order  of  the  British  Empire  in  1991. Her work is in collections around the world, including V&A Museum and the York Art Gallery in UK, the  Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as various major public museums in Japan.
