Edith Heath: Philosophies serves as the definitive resource on Edith Kiertzner Heath (1911-2005) and the history of Heath Ceramics, emphasizing the philosophical foundations and influences of one of the most significant creative forces in post-World War II America.

Heath considered her dinnerware more than a collection of simple objects; rather it was a commentary on goo design and what she believed was indicative of a new and more informal lifestyle in postwar America.

This book offers in-depth commentary on the many themes that shaped Heath's ceramics practice- the environment, feminism, education, experimentation, architecture, politics, social trends, collaborations- while also solidifying the relevance of Edith Heath's story in contemporary life and society.
