Art That You Eat Off Of

Thursday, July 15, 2010 · 7 Comments

I have a weakness for simple, modern ceramics. In stores I stop to ogle and handle every little bowl, wondering if it feels as good in my hands as it looks. Through my passion for modern ceramics I’ve gained an understanding of the principle that good design, no matter how simple, is inherently beautiful. But ceramics are not just pretty objects to look at. From your morning cup of coffee to your midnight snack, they are a part of your everyday life.

While I find all of the designs in this round-up inspired, Heath’s Coupe line (above) holds a special place in my heart as it’s what we use in our household. The line, which we have in linen and mist, is so modern in every sense of the word that it blows my mind that it was designed by Edith Heath back in 1949. It turns out my grandmother has a casserole she purchased from Heath back in the 50’s and now I have the same one.
