Bill's Design Talks: A Tribute to Eva Zeisel


Eva Zeisel was an industrial designer, ceramic artist, writer, and force of nature. During her extraordinary career, which spanned nine decades, she produced highly recognizable domestic items that changed the way Americans set their tables and furnished their homes. Zeisel was widely regarded as a master of modern design, creating objects that were beautiful as well as useful. She often said that her work was the "playful search for beauty."
