AN EXHIBITION OF POTS BY LUCIE RIE DEDICATED TO EMMANUEL COOPER

An exhibition of pots by Lucie Rie at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge which opens on the 4th March has been dedicated to Emmanuel Cooper.



A major exhibition celebrating the work of Lucie Rie, one of the most significant potters of the twentieth century, which opens at Kettles Yard, Cambridge on the 4th March, has, along with its accompanying book, been dedicated to Emmanuel Cooper. The dedication is shared with the Simon Olding, former director of the Craft Studies Centre, who died last year. The exhibition, Lucie Rie: The Adventure of Pottery which runs until 25th June owes a great debt to Emmanuel’s 2012 biography Lucie Rie: Modernist Potter, widely regarded as the definitive study of Rie's life and work, examining her creative output within the broader context of modernism and the emergence of the studio pottery movement in Britain. The new book features images of over a 100 Rie pots and includes essays by Edmund de Waal, Tanya Harrod, Helen Ritchie, Eliza Spindel, Kimberley Chandler and Nigel Wood. Click here for details.
