Whistling Dixie at the Modern Art Museum…

Eva Kettles

My quest for the perfect tea has also led me to find Eva Ziesel. Eva Ziesel has made a significant contribution to making this world a little bit curvier in her 100+ years on earth. This kettle caught my eye today as I was traipsing through the Modern Art Museum gift shop.

Noted industrial designer Eva Ziesel got together with Chantal to create this classic. It is a whistling-Dixie, ergonomic, tad Doctor Seuss curvy designed kettle! It holds 1.8 quarts, and has a seamless body and spout. If you simmer, boil and shimmy a lot of H2O, as we citizens of not only the caffeine bubbly do, you will love this kettle. Its clever handle fits so cozily in the hand and keeps the snippy burning steam far from ones’ knuckles.

Eva knew just what she wanted from her clever kettle. She was slightly sight-impaired when designing this unique kettle, which I find myself early in the mornings as well too! All the more reason for a safe and curvy option. The opening is large enough for easy filling with precious life giving waters. Its flat base makes for quick firing to a boil and the soft to the touch, stay cool handle ensures secure pouring.

Eva’s kettle is featured at the MOMA (The Museum of Modern Art) store online. If you would like to know more about this remarkable woman, you can check her out here. I doubt I will ever be lonely with tea pots and kettles, which seem to be almost dancing, as I cat nap before waking to sip tea.
