Mary Tuthill Lindheim sold her work steadily throughout her career, but lived frugally and took care to keep many of her best pieces. Following her death of natural causes at age 92, a large body of sculpture and ceramics remained in her estate. Artworks by Mary Tuthill Lindheim reside in the permanent collections of Arizona State University Art Museum and Ceramics Center, Bolinas Museum, Crocker Art Museum, Mills College Art Museum, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art (Utah State University), and the Oakland Museum of California.

Below is a sampling of Lindheim's works, all of which can be found in the book Mary Tuthill Lindheim: Art and Inspiration.
