35.00 EUROS

“Edith Heath: Philosophies is the most comprehensive resource to date on Edith Kiertzner Heath (1911-2005) and the history of Heath Ceramics, focusing on the philosophical underpinnings and influences of one of the most important creative forces in post-war America. Heavily illustrated, it includes a foreword, preface, visual chronology, product and glaze history of the ware, and thirteen chapters written by artists and scholars who have researched the Brian and Edith Heath/Heath Ceramics collection at the Environmental Design Archives (EDA), UC Berkeley. This publication will serve as a companion to the 2021 exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California, offering substantial and in-depth commentary on the themes presented-environment, feminism, experimentation, architecture, politics, collaborations-while reinforcing the relevance of Edith Heath’s story to contemporary life and society.

Organised thematically, Edith Heath: Philosophies emphasises lesser-known stories and uses rarely seen images. Edith Heath saw her tableware as more than a collection of objects; it was a statement of good design reflecting the post-war American West Coast lifestyle. The book departs from the traditional linear narrative of the company and situates Edith Heath as an influential and unsung figure in the history of ceramic design. The text and rich illustrations will appeal to a diverse audience interested in postwar design, material culture, and California history.”
