Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series 2011

Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey, owners of Heath Ceramics, speak at the Bison building as part of the MFA in Applied Craft and Design Lecture Series.

The MFA in Applied Craft and Design host the owners of Heath Ceramics for a public lecture as part of the 2010-2011 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series. This lecture took place March 10, 2011 at the MFA AC&D Studios at the Bison Building.

In 2003, husband and wife team Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey purchased Heath Ceramics, one of the few remaining mid-century American potteries still in existence today. Their mission was to revitalize the company. Since purchasing the company, Heath Ceramics has been a finalist in 2009 for the Cooper Hewitt National Design Awards and is featured in the permanent collections of prestigious cultural institutions such as MOMA and LACMA.
