The sculptural Eva pitchers shown here are part of ongoing collaboration between the American company KleinReid and the ceramist Eva Zeisel. Zeisel is well known for her organic modernist pieces, working in Germany and Russia, before emigrating to the United States in the 1930s. KleinReid, meanwhile, is a Brooklyn based business founded by David Reid and James Klein in 1993 which prides itself on the craftsmanship of their handmade ceramics and other products.
As proved by these pitchers, the collaboration works well. The larger of the pitchers measures just over 29cm high and the smaller 21cm meaning their sensuous curves fit snuggly together to make a statement piece. The style of Zeisel's work is reflected in the rest of the range which includes a teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl set and now also crystal. The set of two pitchers costs $285 with prices for the crystal reaching up to $1160.
