Women of Studio Pottery - Lucie Rie

Lucie Rie was born in Vienna in 1902 and moved to england in her early career where she met Hanz Coper. Together they became two of the most renowned studio potters in recent history.
I think i'm particularly interested in Lucie Rie's work because of the fact that she is a woman and there is a very obvious lack of women in the ceramics and studio pottery industries.
Her work with the form of the bowl is very relevant to my tea bowl project at the moment.
Here are some of her works!


  1. Love Lucy Rie's work and that of Takeshi Yasuda particularly his upside down pots.

  2. I have a Takeshi Yasuda cream ware upside down cup for sale.
