A wonderful large low pottery bowl attributed to Edith Heath of Heath Ceramics fame. We have always been curious about this line after first seeing them in Jack Chipman's California Pottery Scrapbook (page 211). We've now had a few of them and having recently seen some of the pieces while on the Heath Sausalito tour, can state that they are indeed associated with Edith Heath, and likely from the 1950s-60s. They may possibly be production pottery instead of studio pottery, and produced outside the actual Heath facotry - but we haven't seen conclusive info yet.
Eggshell white matte glaze with brown speckling on the sides, and darker brown glaze on the top rim. Lighter weight ceramic. Back glaze in mottled brown. We've seen pieces come in white, pink color or a light blue-green, with different vase or bowl forms. These are quite scarce and desirable - would make a great addition for the serious Heath collector. Incised on bottom with "HEATH", we have seen both marked and unmarked forms.
In good condition with no cracks or chips.
Measures about 11 3/4 inches wide, 3 inches tall.
