"It is a pleasure to find a book that combines elegant design and readability with thorough research, especially when the subject is the fascinating 105-year life of ceramic designer Eva Zeisel.... A beautifully illustrated survey of the life and work of an important designer, useful to both collectors and readers interested in 20th-century modernism." -Library Journal
"At once scholarly and intimate, this book honors the unique life and artistic achievements of Eva Zeisel.... Her designs are photographed with magical light by Brent Brolin and chronicled by Kirkham and her co-authors, Pat Moore and Pirco Wolfframm, who also became devoted friends and scholars of all things Zeisel. Whether emerging out of darkness or basking against a warm, bright glow, each piece pops with boldness of contour and subtlety of surface."- Ellen Lupton, Designers & Books
"A remarkable tribute to one of the 20th century's most adept ceramicists and designers of housewares." - San Jose Mercury News

She was a mentor and exemplar to generations of designers, including each term of my History of ID students at Art Center College of Design. As it happens, tonight we will be covering Eva's work in class again, a new group will fall in love with her, and I will show them this book. Along with "Eva Zeisel: Designer for Industry," this is an indispensable record of her work for scholars, designers, and anyone who loves design.
