The marvellous Lucie Rie: The Adventure of Pottery has just opened at Kettle's Yard in Cambridge, and will continue to the Holburne in Bath in July. Born in Vienna to prosperous Jewish family, Lucie Rie (1902-95) studied at the prestigious Kunstwerbeschule and established her name internationally as a maker of elegant modernist pottery before coming to London in 1938 as a refugee. She set up studio and home in 18 Albion Mews (above) where she worked and lived in exile for the rest of her life.
