I'm not sure why I haven't done a post on Eva Zeisel yet.
I'm not much of a "dish queen",
but I feel a little guilty it took
her death to get her onto the "pages" of
I also "lost"
(just for a few days luckily)
the monograph I had on her,
so not only is her tribute overdue,
but it is late!
So here we go,
better late than never....
