Eva Zeisel on the playful search for beauty

Categories: Modern Decor + Objects

The last few days of 2011 were marked with a bit of grief, we’re sad to say, as the inspiring and revolutionary designer Eva Zeisel passed away December 30th. Her long-lasting career was filled with simple, beautiful, lovely designs that re-created the idea of American dinnerware. The Washington Post did an excellent job of describing her life’s work, Eva Zeisel, groundbreaking designer, dies. We absolutely loved the TED talk she gave in 2001 about how she was always on a “playful search for beauty” and we love how sassy she is about describing how she was still working well into her later years:

  1. The Heisey glass community joins in the sorrow of Eva Zeisel’s passing. She was Art Director at A. H. Heisey & Company starting in 1953, responsible for the designs of “Town & Country”, “Hourglass”, “Crystal Buds” and “Roundelay.” Striking in their simplicty and difficult to find, examples may be seen at The National Heisey Glass Museum in Newark, Ohio.
