Lucie Rie: Ceramics and Buttons
July 13, 2018
The Centre of Ceramic Art at York Art Gallery presents an exhibition of work by ACS member Lucie Rie which highlights a lesser known area of the respected ceramicist’s practice.
Following her emigration to the UK during the Second World War, Rie began producing buttons for the fashion industry after identifying a gap in the market due to factories being requisitioned for the War effort. Hundreds of the artist’s buttons are on display alongside examples of finely thrown vessels and functional ware produced by Rie, and by her collaborator and ACS member Hans Coper.
Until 12 May 2019
