This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Austria as Lucie Gomperz,  she married Hans Rie in 1926.  In the late 1930s, she settled in London alone and  established her ceramics studio at Albion Mews.

One of the most eminent studio potters, Dame Lucie Rie began her career in her native Vienna as a student of ceramist Michael Powolny at the Kustgewerbeschule.  Establishing her first studio in 1925, Lucie Rie began exhibiting at international exhibitions immediately, having her work selected by Josef Hoffman for inclusion in the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in Paris.  Over the next decade she devoted herself to experimenting with glaze and form, carefully recording her progress in notebooks that are today preserved by the Crafts Study Centre outside of London.  During this period she won a number of awards for her work at major exhibitions, including a gold medal at the Brussels International Exhibition of 1935 and a silver medal at the Paris International Exhibition of 1937.
