This is a wonderful TED talk by Eva Zeisel. Here is the description on the TED Talks website:
"The ceramics designer Eva Zeisel looks back on a 75-year career. What keeps her work as fresh today (her latest line debuted in 2008) as in 1926? Her sense of play and beauty, and her drive for adventure. Listen for stories from a rich, colorful life."
She speaks softly but, if you have some patience, listen through the whole 18 minutes. There are some gems in there!
