Lucie Rie’s Footed Bowl and William Morris’ Glasswork Highlight Hindman’s Upcoming SaleNov 18, 2022 10:00 CST
Austrian-born British potter Lucie Rie produced fine ceramic buttons to make ends meet during and after World War II. She studied pottery under the guidance of artist Michael Powolny at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule, a school of arts and crafts. In 1946, she hired Hans Coper to help her make ceramic buttons. The creative duo established a style of modern ceramic art that remains influential even today. Footed Bowl by Lucie Rie is a key highlight of this upcoming Modern Design event, held by Hindman. The porcelain bowl with a golden manganese glaze and sgraffito design is signed with an impressed artist’s seal to the underside. The piece showcases Rie’s unique 20th-century ceramic techniques.
William Morris’ glasswork, Suspended Petroglyph: Urn with Horn, is also available in the sale. The offered item stands on an enamelled metal stand and was made in 1991. The first section of the auction features a selection of works from American luminaries Paul Evans and Paul Frankl as well as suites by American artists and designers Philip and Kelvin LaVerne. European highlights from the sale feature iconic designs by Hans Wegner, Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Franco Albini, Afra and Tobia Scarpa, Gae Aulenti and Cini Boeri. Find the listed items and more by visiting Hindman.
