Amazing Artist and Designer

Prototypes for Modular Ceramic Wall Dividers, 1958 by Eva Zeisel, Collection of the artist.

A designer of ceramics and dinnerware. Zeisel designed the shapes and often the decals that adorned them. However, because the factories owned the shapes, quite often they would put decals on the pieces that were not designed by her, and she often felt they did not match the design. Sadly, she passed away yesterday, happily she made it to 105!

There was a piece on "CBS Sunday Morning" on this artist today. She also had an amazing life story, in addition to being an incredible sculptor. Thanks for posting...glad I found your blog!
