Eva Zeisel (American-Hungarian, 1906 - 2011) was one of the twentieth century's most influential 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 photography, which 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 the design legend.
