New York City-based industrial designer Eva Zeisel (b. 1906) joined forces with Brooklyn potters James Klein and David Reid in 1999 for the "Eva" line. The undulating curves of these nestling vases recall elements of Zeisel's work from fifty years earlier. Designed by Eva at age 93, they demonstrate her ongoing "playful search for beauty."
