Dame Lucie Rie
Person Female Born 16/3/1902 Died 1/4/1995
Potter. Née Gompertz in Vienna into a rich, intellectual family. 1938 she and her husband fled Nazism intending to go to the USA but Lucie, already more interested in her work than her husband, decided to stay in London alone. Do Google her work - it is lovely and delicate compared with that of Bernard Leach, another big name in pottery at the time. Died at home, Albion Mews.
