Eva Zeisel: Life, Design, and Beauty

By Pat Kirkham, Pat Moore, and Pirco Wolfframm
Introduction by Eva Zeisel
Photographs by Brent C. Brolin

Eva Zeisel was one of the twentieth century’s most influential ceramicists and designers of modern housewares. Her distinctive take on modern industrial design was inspired by organic form and brought beauty and playfulness to housewares, earning her designs a beloved place in mid-century homes. This richly illustrated volume—the first-ever complete biographical account of Zeisel’s life and work—presents an extensive survey of every line she ever created, all captured in gorgeous new photography, plus 28 short essays from scholars, collectors, curators, and designers. The definitive book on the grande dame of twentieth-century ceramics, this is an essential resource for anyone who appreciates modern design.
