eva zeisel

why havnt i heard of this lady before?

this bitches work is the most conceptually and emotionally charged pattern and pottery work i have ever seen in my short life. type her up on ebay or find her old work at an auction house, her stuff goes for absurd prices. 250 for a cracked twenty-year-old teapot? are you fucking kidding me? note the curves , the thin forms of the handles and the pattern work on her porcelain kitchenware. considering porcelain is an absolute bitch to work with, especially in mass production, she is thee female industrial designer of all time.

plus, shes 90 sumthin and shes still designing.

the sites down for now but...
