Eva Striker Zeisel [1906-2011]. Zeisel was a Hungarian-born, American designer whose career spanned over 90 years and thousands of pieces. She believed in “The Playful Search for Beauty.” Though best known for her ceramics, she also worked in glass, wood, metal and plastics. Eva was imprisoned under Stalin, had the first one-woman show at MoMA and was honored at the White House, with many adventures in-between. She continued designing until she died at 105. Her work is in permanent collections of major museums around the world, including the British Museum, MoMA and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
