Lucie Rie & Hans Coper Signed Stamped Yellow Glazed Stoneware Bowl, circa 1950

$12,500

About the Item

A gorgeous mustard-yellow glazed stoneware bowl with manganese rim by famed European potters Lucie Rie & Hans Coper. The bowl is signed with each artist's impressed seals on the base. Simply a must for any collector of Rie or Coper's work or a beautiful stand-alone piece sure to light up any setting. Lucie Rie was an Austrian-born studio potter. She was primarily known for her distinctive 20th century modernist style. She and her husband escaped to London in 1938 a few months before the start of the Second World War. After the war, Lucie met a youthful Hans Coper who was also living in exile (he was born in Germany in 1920). It was Coper, during this time while working as an assistant in Rie's studio, who convinced Lucie to return to the creations she originally made in Austria despite the initial lukewarm response to them in the UK. Coper, of course, went on to have an illustrious career in his own right. His works are found today in the collections of major museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Museum de Fundatie, the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich UK, and York Art Gallery, as well as in private collections worldwide. Rie's career needs little introduction. Her works can be found in such prominent museums as The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the York Art Gallery in the UK, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and the Paisley Museum in Scotland to name but a few. Her lifetime achievement awards include: 1968 Officer of the Order of the British Empire 1969 Honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art 1981 Commander of the Order of the British Empire 1991 Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire 1992 Honorary Doctorate from Heriot-Watt University Dimensions: 2.5" high, 5.25" diameter.
