Lucie Rie Bottle

Lucie Rie Bowl

These days it's all tracking numbers and carton dimensions, but not so long ago I'd deliver all London stockists by hand, the return route describing a wayward line taking in any number of attractions. One such attraction, Galerie Besson, is a light-filled sales space in the intricate Royal Arcade of Old Bond Street. Fortunate enough to catch the previous show, I've not yet seen the current collection of pots from 20th century innovator, Lucie Rie, chiming with the timely retrospective in Japan.
