Eva Zeisel: Life, Design, and Beauty

£24.99

Product description

Eva Zeisel was one of the twentieth century's most influential ceramicists and designers of modern housewares. Her distinctive take on modern industrial design was inspired by organic form and brought beauty and playfulness to housewares, earning her designs a beloved place in midcentury homes. This richly illustrated volume-the first-ever complete biographical account of Zeisel's life and work-presents an extensive survey of every line she ever created, all captured in gorgeous new photography, plus 28 short essays from scholars, collectors, curators, and designers. The definitive book on the grande dame of twentieth-century ceramics, this is an essential resource for anyone who appreciates modern design.

In this comprehensive monograph, scholars collectors, and curators celebrate the Hungarian-born designer's extraordinary career. An illustrated introduction contextualises 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 new photography, while 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 a design legend.

This hardback book is in near perfect condition; the pages are clean and tightly bound and the cover shows minimal wear.
