fun facts:
Edith (1911-2005) was born in Iowa.
went to college in Chicago at the Chicago Teachers College.
after graduating, she enrolled part-time at the Art Institute of Chicago taking her first ceramics class (yay!)
she relocated to San Francisco with her husband, Brian and became an art teacher there.
she founded her own company/studio un the mid-40s.
her pieces were picked up by Gump's in San Fran.
many of her pieces have permanent homes in museums, for example...MOMA in NYC (kind of a big deal)
Heath ceramics is still produced today. every piece is made in the original Sausalito, California factory.
