Exhibition Review by Maurice Bennett, Wellington

"LUICE RIE: A new Zealand Connection" - The Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt, Wellington.

Lucie Rie: A New Zealand Connection is a not-to-be-missed exhibition for lovers of ceramics, modernism, design, and beautiful objects.

In 1938 Lucie Rie fled Austria, emigrating to London, where she set up a pottery studio. She was influential in introducing European shapes and design to British ceramics, which is in contrast to the heavy brown ware of the Anglo/ Japanese style pottery, which dominated the English speaking world at the time. ..... is now managed by NZ Potters (Inc) for members only.
