I admit I haven't visited this studio but I can't let it go unmentioned. The very thoughtful Kylie Johnson, of Paper Boat Press fame, sent me this photo because she may have had a small (!) inkling I might appreciate it. It's a happy snap she took of the recreation of part of the workshop of Dame Lucie Rie, in the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, England.
I like it because of the way the bench surrounds her wheel; because there are so many beautifully worn, wooden tools and brushes arranged in such a practical way; because the radios and lamp are so cool and because I don't know what the hell that green crystal-y thing is (always good to have some mystery).
And, well, of course I just like it because it's Lucie Rie's.
The V&A...one day...
