The "Odd Couple", an installation comprising two vessels by Eva Zeisel.

$ 16,000
  • Description
    Most of Zeisel’s designs, whether in wood, metal, glass, plastic or ceramics, are designed in family groups. The inspiration for her sensuous forms often comes from the curves of the human body.

    This unique grouping, from the estate of Eva Zeisel is an opportunity for an institution or collector to acquire an important example of an iconic female designer's oeuvre.
    These masterworks were produced at Zsolnay, one of Europe's finest ceramic producers , a company that has been renowned for over 150 years.
    Exceptionally, the designer, Eva Zeisel, was the first woman celebrated by a one woman show at MoMA and who had a career that spanned from the Bauhous to 21st Century Contempory Art . For a full discussion of this collaboration at Znoslnay see:- Pages 128-9 Eva Zeisel: Life, Design, and Beauty Chronicle Books, San Francisco 2013

    In 2005, Zeisel won the Lifetime Achievement award from the Cooper-Hewett National Design Museum.[20] She has also received the two highest civilian awards from the Hungarian government, as well as the Pratt Legends award and awards from the Industrial Designers Society of America and Alfred University. She is an honorary member of the Royal Society of Industrial Designers, and has received honorary degrees from Parsons (New School), Rhode Island School of Design, the Royal College of Art, and the Hungarian University of the Arts.

    She has been represented in 16 exhibitions at MoMa, including her own show in 1946.
