Eva Zeisel, ceramic artist and designer died on Friday in New City, N.Y. She was 105. The New York Times notes: "Ms. Zeisel (pronounced ZY-sel), along with designers like Mary and Russel Wright and Charles and Ray Eames, brought the clean, casual shapes of modernist design into middle-class American homes with furnishings that encouraged a postwar desire for fresh, less formal styles of living."
