Signed Heath Ceramics

Those who love mid century modern ceramics love Edith Heath. She opened her California studio in 1948 and began making simple but sturdy and beautiful tableware, eventually becoming one of the most widely retailing studio potters in the USA. Known for her combinations of hand built and hand thrown forms, the simplicity and modernity of her designs remains one of the studio’s hallmarks to this day. These vintage Heath ashtrays from the 1950’s are great examples of the studio’s work, and make a timeless addition to any home.

Occidental Beach

Beach outside of Occidental, California

Dispatch from my epic west coast homeland vacation. First to San Francisco and Napa Valley, then up to Oregon for a desert, beach and Portland rendezvous. Pretty plants and thrift stores abound!
