Eva Zeisel at Ashville

Monday March 23, 2009

Eva Zeisel at Ashville Art - Potteries of CaliforniaI realize that this doesn’t have to do exclusively with California Pottery, but I’m posting it anyhow. Eva Zeisel did create designs for a few California companies, although she’s perhaps best known for her designs for Hallcraft, Red Wing, Rosenthal and Castleton. The Ashville Art Museum is running an exhibition on Zeisel’s work (organized by the Erie Art Museum). If you’re in the North Carolina area between now and May 10, 2009, you might want to check it out. I believe this is a travelling exhibit, so even if you’re not in the area, there’s a chance it may come to a museum near you in the future.

The California pottery companies that I’m aware that she designed for include the Riverside Ceramic Co. and the Hollydale Pottery. Riverside China, in particular, is quite rare and desirable. They produced this one iconic carafe designed by Zeisel that is really amazing - I only know of it through auctions and Jack Chipman’s books.

Long ago, I nearly bought some Red Wing Eva Zeisel items at the thrift - but at the time I wasn’t really familiar with her work. I’m certainly regretting that now, but I’ve found that such missed opportunities provide some of the best “kick-in-the-pants” motivation to educate yourself on different pottery manufacturers! =)

Update: I just found out from Scott that there’s also a video up by Jeremy Bales called Eva Zeisel: Distinguished by Design. She actually just turned 102 years old!
