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."

Join us for a celebration of Eva Zeisel and her influence on contemporary design. Jed Perl, art critic for The New Republic, will discuss Eva Zeisel's life and legacy in a new season of Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum conversations, hosted by Bill Moggridge. They will be joined by designers James Klein and David Reid, who collaborated closely with Eva Zeisel on a series of ceramics and prints.
