subtelty and simplicity


Lucie Rie's ceramics is the embodiment of subtlety and simplicity. Her forms breathe. A gorgeous exhibit of her life's work is now at Issey Miyake’s 21_21 in Tokyo, a place I have always wanted to visit. Some day. The exhibition was designed by Tadao Ando and features a pool of water on which the ceramics actually float.
