Studio pottery by Lucie Rie


The other day I came across a piece of pottery by Lucie Rie and fell in love. The shapes are so minimal and inviting. The balance between the simplicity of the shape and the complexity of the colors is stunning. The pieces with all of the intricate lines work won me over, so beautiful. Lucie Rie (1902-1995), Viennese emigre, set up studio in London, pre-WWII, was a leader for English potters and studio pottery in the 20th century. Her work is the embodiment of the Japanese aesthetic of ‘wabi-sabi‘, the acceptance of impermanence and imperfection.
