Autumn New York 2007. MOMA, Museum of Modern Art is free on Friday nights.
But it seems only the tourist know.
Which turned out to be a wonderful thing.
Russel Wright and Eva Zeisel’s similiar oval, curvy and languid teaware made it to the MOMA’s design floor.
They were both commissioned by Hall China Co. from East Liverpool, Ohio.
The best representation of Wright’s and Zeisel’s works are not reflected in the pieces MOMA exhibits
but are hidden away in cabinets and attics of
Ohio’s shrinking small towns and aging population. Unknown by a lot of people from Ohio,
but Ohio was pivotal in the ceramics art movement of last century.
