Durable, honest, and handsome, the tableware and tiles that Heath Ceramics creates are design icons. Heath is made according to the artisanal tradition that Edith Heath conceived in the mid 1940s, when she founded the company in Sausalito, California; one of the few remaining mid-century American potteries.

Now the remarkable history, legacy, and culture of these ceramics and architectural tiles, as well as the woman who created them, are told for the first time. The late Edith Heath's life and work, as well as the techniques that went into creating Heath's signature shapes and glazes, are detailed in hundreds of archival and newly commissioned images. Heath's work has been an inspiration to numerous design luminaries in diverse fields, who contribute their insights to the book.
