Eva Zeisel "Maker of useful things"

Eva Zeisel was an Austrian born Industrial designer famous for her organic and natural ceramic work. After she moved to America, her work became more popular and she even called herself the "maker of useful things." While all of her pieces are useful, they all also maintain a very organic and almost human element.

Eva passed away December 30, 2011 at the age of 105. Her work has recently had a reemergence into popularity.

She has a lengthy interview on design and the approach she takes to ceramics, which I have provided the link to.

A wonderful woman who will be missed by the design world.
