Luce Artist Biography

Edris Eckhardt studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art and taught ceramics there for almost three decades. In 1932 she opened a studio where she created clay sculptures and experimented with different glazes. Eckhardt started working in glass in the 1950s, inspired by ancient Roman and Egyptian pieces, and won two John Simon Guggenheim awards as well as a Louis Comfort Tiffany fellowship for her work. Between 1953 and her death in 1998, Eckhardt produced and sold more than four thousand objects, and her patrons included Eleanor Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Queen Elizabeth II.
