Several weeks ago I clipped out an article from the Wall Street Journal about industrial designer, Eva Zeisel. I fastened the story to my office door so everyone visiting me could read it. Born in Hungry in 1906, Zeisel is one of the great modernist designers of the 20th century. The article titled, “Designer Eva Zeisel, 104 and Still at It” profiles her life’s journey and her remarkable career—still going strong at 105!
For those of us much younger who are trying to remain current and relevant in an ever changing world, she is an inspiration. She has lived big and filled the corners of her life with art, beauty, and challenging experiences.
When asked last year how old Eva feels she answered: “I feel 104.”
