Set Your Table with Edith Heath

Betty spends every November preparing for Thanksgiving and remembering all that she is grateful for. As she begins to wash and organize her Heath ceramic dishes for the big day, she can’t help but feel lucky. With simple clean lines who wouldn’t appreciate each beautifully designed piece?

Edith Heath was one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Her avant-garde ceramic dinnerware caught the attention of the nation. Her use of glazes and clay bodies added to her distinctive look. Her company Heath Ceramics also created architectural tiles, which won her the American Institute of Architects Gold Metal as well as the admiration of many architects including Frank Lloyd Wright and Eero Saarinen.
