People: Lucie Rie

Lucie Rie was an Austrian studio potter working in London from the late 1930’s right up until her death in 1995. You will struggle to find better examples of understated elegance than her clean, modernist pieces. They are staggering in person - you can visit the V&A ceramics gallery to see a recreation of her workshop.
