From the cover: Lucie Rie (1902-1995), one of the centurys most celebrated and iconic potters, combined an acute understanding of modernism with the skills of her chosen craft. During the course of her sixty-year career, she continually honed and refined her work, developing new shapes and surface effects that were distinctly her own. Her delicately shaped bowls, bottles and other vessels reflect her commitment to simplicity and clarity of form, her both critical and popular acclaim.
