Eva Zeisel: Life, Design, and Beauty

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 (1906-2011) was one of the twentieth century's most influential ceramicists and industrial designers. Zeisel's distinctive vision brought a sensuous beauty and playfulness to objects ranging from ceramics to glass, and textiles to furniture, many of which remain in production to this day.

In this comprehensive monograph, scholars, collectors, and curators celebrate the Hungarian-born designer's extraordinary career. An illustrated introduction contextualizes her remarkable life and work, from surviving more than a year in Soviet prison accused of plotting against Stalin, to being the first female designer ever featured in a solo exhibition at the MoMA. Every major collection she ever created is captured here in gorgeous new photography, while twenty-eight short essays offer detailed studies of particular lines. Capturing the breadth, variety, and exquisite quality of her work, Eva Zeisel: Life, Design, and Beauty is the ultimate tribute to a design legend.
