Eva Zeisel was a Hungarian-born American industrial designer best known for her ceramic work throughout the 1940s-1960s. A self-described "maker of useful things", Eva's designs are playful yet practical and were inspired by her own personal relationships and the natural world around her.
Each modern tableware piece by Eva Zeisel Originals reflects Eva's distinctive fluid and graceful style. The curves on the furniture, dinnerware, and candlestick holders are extensions of her earlier works and, yet, feel fresh and timeless.
You may not know Eva Zeisel, but you certainly know her work.
“Throwing Curves – Eva Zeisel” explores the life and art of a brave & adventurous woman who conquered the 20th century with her curvilinear style to become one of the most famous industrial designers of the modern era. She thought of her designs as gifts. Her motto was “the playful search for beauty."

Working primarily in porcelain and ceramic tableware, Eva Zeisel’s pioneering work introduced her trademark sensuous curves to mass-production. Her one woman show at the Museum of Modern Art. (MoMA) in 1946 put her on the map. With over 80 years in the field, Eva was one of the best-selling tableware designers of all time and her highly-collectable designs changed the face of modern design.
