Lucie Rie’s solid, soft ceramics combine with the dark and light of these photographs to make welcoming images. Dame Lucie Rie was a prominent British potter who became internationally known after her exhibition at Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1994. In 1938, she fled Nazi Austria for England and started making buttons and jewelry to make ends meet. She began working with ceramics in 1946 in a cozy studio for fifty years.
