Lucie Rie (1902 - 1995) is one of the finest modern potters of the twentieth century. Born and trained in Vienna, her successful early career came to a halt in 1938 when forced to leave Austria to escape the persecution of Jewish people. In exile in London, Rie established a new workshop and over five decades created highly individual bowls, vases and tableware which continue to amaze and inspire today. As one of a small number of independent female potters working in Britain after the war, Rie was to forge her own path at odds with prevailing trends.

Featuring photographs of over 100 works - bowls, vases, tableware and buttons - from private and public collections and six insightful essays, this catalogue of the first survey of Lucie Rie's pottery in the UK in over 20 years considers afresh the singular nature of Rie's achievement, and reflects on her remarkable body of work, exceptional in its variety, elegance and experimentation.
