Riverside Ceramics

In 1947 Eva Zeisel began designing for The Riverside Ceramic Company, Riverside, California a small firm with a particular expertise in glaze work that produced intricate thin-walled ceramics. Zeisel’s work for Riverside incorporated unusual and richly curvilinear modern designs that were further heighten by the deeply saturated and modulated hues of the glazes. Works from Zeisel’s line were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in September 1947 and a number of works remain in the museum’s permanent collection. For various reasons, the factory closed shortly after they made this set, so these remain among Zeisel's rarest pieces.
