In 1999, James Klein and David Reid of ceramics design firm KleinReid approached living legend Eva Zeisel about a possible collaboration. The fruits of their labor—limited edition archival prints and vases—now sell from Room & Board. Born in Hungary in 1906, Zeisel's long career has inspired many artists and fans though the years.
For the KleinReid Collection, Zeisel designed two vase trios. The first features three curved porcelain vases hand-glazed in white, curved so that they fit together. The second, three vases covered in a yellow satin glaze, have retro-fresh appeal that speaks to KleinReid's ethos for excellence in porcelain. The vases range from $69 to $150.
In addition to the ceramics, Zeisel designed a series of prints, "The Lovers' Suite Collection." Printed on 100% archival cotton paper, numbered and signed, and framed in white aluminum frames, the prints consist of four designs: Sprouts in orange, Swans in teal, Tulips in gray, and Wings in yellow. They sell for $300 a piece.
Produced at the KleinReid studio in New York, the prints and vases sell online from Room & Board, as well as at their stores.
