Lucie Rie toby jug modeled by Douglas V. Tootle and produced by Kevin Francis Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, in a 1993 limited edition of 200. Lucie Rie (1902 - 1995) was an Austrian born British studio potter. Rie's work has been described as cosmopolitan. She is best remembered for her bowl and bottle forms. Her pottery is displayed in collections around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the York Art Gallery in the UK, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and Paisley Museum in Scotland. She influenced many during her 60 year career and developed very inventive kiln processing. She was awarded the title of Dame Commander (DCE) after teaching at the Camberwell School of Art from 1960 until 1971. A stand displaying one of her bottles forms the handle of the jug.
