‘My dear Mrs Rie’ Talk by Emmanuel Cooper
29 March 2011
Emmanuel Cooper will be giving a lecture at the 2011 festival. The talk will discuss on Lucie Rie’s pioneering work in forging anew, modernist language of ceramics in h4. contrast to the practiced by Leach and Cardew. As an urban rather than a rural potter her work was highly sophisticated in both its making and its concept.
