About the artist

Rie was born in Vienna, Austria. After training at the Kunstgewerbe Schule, she moved to England in 1938. She worked with Hans Coper for many years, but it was only in the 1950s that the quality of her work was recognised. Although Rie was an admirer of Bernard Leach's work, her production was much more metropolitan in style, with no undertones of folk art. She taught at Camberwell College of Art and received an OBE in 1968.
