Design by Hand

Heath Ceramics

About the Series

Cooper-Hewitt is proud to present Design by Hand from fall 2013 through spring 2017. This exciting new series focuses on the craftsmanship, innovations, and merits of contemporary global designers. Special programs will connect university students, high school students, adults, and families with design.

Each week spotlights an innovative design firm, beginning with the iconic Finnish brand Marimekko in 2013, followed by American design pioneer Heath Ceramics in spring 2014. The Shop currently carries a curated selection of Marimekko products to coincide with this series.
