KleinReid Teapot Eva
What a special find! KleinReid was founded in Brooklyn in 1993 by James Klein and David Reid. A pioneer in ceramic design and maker movements, the studio is widely credited with bringing design to American studio pottery; marrying timeless art pottery methods and time-honored industrial techniques. The influential workshop is renowned for its elegant shapes, translucent porcelain, artisanal glazes, design integrity and impeccable craftsmanship. As it always has been, all work is made “from scratch” — hand produced and hand glazed in-house.KleinReid’s refined style has attracted a following and its wares are sought by museums, collectors, celebrities and politicians, including recent presidents. But the majority is owned by people seeking to enhance their surroundings and elevate the everyday with well-made, affordable, functional forms.
This is a Eva Zeisel ceramic teapot designed in 1999 for KleinReid. Eva Zeisel is a Hungarian-born (1906) American industrial designer known for her work with ceramics. She was a wartime refugee who fled to New York where she transformed American tables with her distinctive clean-lined chinaware. Though she had an extensive and successful career, her most recent works were for KleinReid. She lived to the beautiful age of 105 and left a lasting impact on the design world.
This beautiful teapot exhibit functional beauty. It has a sturdy bamboo handle and is hand-stamped with the KleinReid logo and Zeisel signature. Unfortunately we did not find the lid of this gorgeous piece, but is still functional as a unique and quality decorative piece.
