A Handful of Clay: The Legacy of Edith Heath

Thursday, 05/22/14 09/19/14
112 Wurster Hall

From just a handful of clay, ceramicist Edith Heath pioneered a design aesthetic that continues to inspire today and earned her a rare AIA gold medal for a non-architect. Her focus on simplicity, functionality, and durability blends the line between daily use and Sunday best and continues to have a lasting impact on the design community.  Heath products, from tile to stoneware, have been recognized internationally for their quality and vision. The exhibition explores her life as an artist and ceramicist, as well as her collaborations with architects. Materials come from the Environmental Design Archives, the Brian and Edith Heath Foundation, and Heath Ceramics.

Lecture and panel discussion to be held in the Environmental Design Library, led by Jennifer Doublet Thursday, May 22 at 7:00pm.
