Abstract:

The late Eva Zeisel was a legendary ceramics designer whose long career enabled her to make beautiful things and see the world. Born in Budapest in 1906, she apprenticed to a guild of potters as a teenager before working in Germany, Vienna, and Russia, where she was imprisoned by Stalin for 16 months. She eventually landed in New York with her husband Hans in 1938 where her organic shapes, toned colors, and sense of fun and play defined the American postwar period. The recipient of many lifetime achievement awards, Zeisel eventually branched out into glassware and furniture and died in 2011 at the age of 105. In this TEDTalk, Zeisel looks back on a 75-year career and the line she debuted in 2008.
