The Kettle's Yard exhibition provides a survey of the different phases of Lucie Rie's long career. Although her style did not change significantly, the 1970s saw the introduction of sgraffito - fine lines drawn with a needle on the unfired clay - and greater experimentation with glazes and colours.

She died at the age of ninety-three and left a phenomenal body of work.
