I met Kanik while working for Eva Zeisel. He handblew her lamp designs that I had transcribed into drawings, and she loved the results. Eva really loved working with Kanik, as he understood her beautiful design language. I have one of these pieces in my home, a wedding gift from Eva, and I often think of Kanik's cheerful and precise method of working with us on this. I am so sorry to hear that he has passed, it was too soon. Kanik's love of life lives on in his work and in this light.
