Tony Birks' much praised biography was written with the full cooperation of the potter, whose friendship with the author spanned more than a quarter of a century It stands as the only complete account of the life and work of this extraordinary figure in European ceramics Lucie Rie made her first pots in 1923, her last in 1990. Born Lucie Gomperz in Vienna in 1902, she came to England in 1938 to escape the Nazis. Her artistic achievement closely related to the encouragement and personal inspiration provided by a series of men. As Lucie herself said, "I am man-made". Simple, yet infinitely subtle and complex, Lucie Rie pots approach excellence not by refinement to an ever purer shape: it is by their sturdiness and their frailty: a combination of opposites, economy and luxuriance, lightness and dark. As a person, she showed the same combination of opposites. Her diminutive size belied her determination, her capacity for work. She received many honours, an OBE in 1968, a CBE in 1981, and was made a Dame in 1991. She was much written about, and was the subject of a BBC film. Lucie Rie died in 1995.
This book is excellent. It not only has an in depth recount of Lucie's life but also depicts in pictures and descriptions her pottery throughout her career in ceramics. Mr. Birks writes with such clarity and reverence for Lucie with regard to obstacles she overcame as a women in a field dominated by men and as a woman living from 1902 - 1995. I would recommend this book to people interested in ceramics as well as reading about a woman who lived during some very turbulent times and was able to pursue a career that lasted from the 1920's until her death.
A beautiful rediscovery
great book - bought for my wife who is a potter - she loves it and is inspired by it
Really nice
I bought the book to see Lucies loverly pot but its so much more. I really injoyed reading about what was happening with ceramics after the war in the U.K.
It was used and I knew that . I was told told that the loose cover was missing; however I found a stain on top on the hard cover which I need to remove as soon as I figure out best way. In all I am very happy.
A wonderful book, with a wealth of information about Lucie Rie, her life, her work. I have been looking for this book for several month, it is out of print, but.... translated into German, it is sold like a catalogue at the current Lucie Rie exhibit at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna, Austria. Many photos, partially in color, a lot to read and a lot to look at. I am delighted.
always good to have master's book.
