Lucie Rie

I stopped off at Kettle’s Yard to see the Lucie Rie exhibition, which was much more varied than I had expected, showing the full range of her work. beginning in Vienna in the 1930s:-

To buttons she made as an enemy alien in the early 1940s:-

To earthenware bowls in the late 1940s:-

To teapots for Heal’s:-

And stoneware jugs:-

To prototypes for Wedgwood (rejected):-

More elaborately decorated work from the 1970s:-

To a late, translucent, porcelain bowl:-

This was her showroom in Albion Mews:-

The exhibition was designed (beautifully) by David Kohn, with graphics by A Practice of Everyday Life.
