on love _ a farewell to eva zeisel








my all-time hero, hungarian-born designer eva zeisel
passed away two days ago, on december 30th 2011,
at the age of 105.
she's one of those people i've wanted to meet, hug
and tell how much i loved.
i can't do that in person any more
but i've done it numerous times in my imagination.
her life and thoughts on beauty and design
continue to be tremendous inspiration to me.
travel safe, eva!

both photos of eva by talisman brolin.
quote taken from the section love
in her book, eva zeisel on design (the overlook press, 2004).

(on a different note, in hope of getting a few more hungarian readers
in addition to the now approximately 20 daily visits, from now on, i'll also try and write my blog
in hungarian, my mother tongue, all the while keeping english as the main lagnuage.
we'll see whether it will work out.)

nem vagyok a szavak embere, de mostantól megpróbálok magyarul is írni,
azzal a nem titkolt szándékkal, hogy esetleg magyar emberkék is olvassák a blogomat,
mert az az igazság, hogy a magyar olvasottságom igencsak gyér.
meglátjuk, van-e értelme, remélem, hogy igen.


legnagyobb példaképem, a budapesti születésű new-yorki designer,
zeisel éva tegnapelőtt hunyt el, 105 évesen.
élete és könyve, az on design, nagyon nagy hatással
voltak/vannak rám. komolyan úgy gondolom,
hogy oktatni kellene ezt a könyvet a design-iskolákban.
isten véled, éva néni!

u.i.: nagyon boldog új évet kívánok mindenkinek!
