Inspiration from a Mother of Modern

This 103-year-old mother of modern manages to tap into her creative spirit everyday...we find out how!

Getting control of our creative selves, and channeling that creativity into worthwhile projects takes time and stamina. That's assuming you have the inspiration to begin with. With everything we have to do in a day, creative expression barely stands a chance. But maybe we should move expressing ourselves closer to the top of the list.

Looking at 103 year-old Eva Zeisel, I  see a slew of benefits to creativity, though reaping them takes effort. Zeisel survived 12 months of solitary confinement under Josef Stalin and moved from country to country in Europe before finally settling in New York, where she became the first female to ever have a solo show at the NY MoMA.

In this interview, Zeisel reveals the secrets to her success...

See how Eva survived life in a Soviet prison camp to become a major force in modern design.
