Edith Heath (1911–2005), a talented ceramicist, founded Heath Ceramics in 1948. Edith had a strong point of view on the product that her company would make — simple, good things for good people.
Edith’s passion for ceramics led to advances in clay and glaze development, which secured Heath its unique place in ceramics history. Her pieces were designed to enjoy a single kiln firing, at a lower than normal temperature, thus saving energy, while remarkably producing a durable and non-porous product. This Great Depression mentality motivated her to design and produce long-lasting products with integrity, in a responsible manner.
Today, Heath Ceramics is considered among the most enduring examples of mid-century design. Found in restaurants, homes and museums worldwide, Heath Ceramics is synonymous with simple, functional and thoughtfully designed tableware and tile.
It’s worth taking a look at their cups and mugs:
