Heath Ceramics

all photos from Heath Ceramics

I started collecting Heath Ceramics back in 2008, when I was shopping for some new dinnerware. They are one of the few remaining mid-century American potteries and with a crew of only 60 people (with many of them there 20 years plus), it makes for a very special company. Located in Sausalito CA, they were founded by Edith Heath in 1948, an influential potter and designer of the Modernist era.

In 2003, husband and wife team, Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey purchased Heath Ceramics with a mission to revitalize the company, by placing a strong emphasis on design, handcrafted techniques, and the reinvigoration of the company’s designer-maker legacy.

Chez Panisse, Brasserie 44 at the Royalton Hotel, and The Slanted Door are just a few of the top restaurants who use their dinnerware. Nice!

I am mad about their designs, and have a long list of what I want to add next. The simple clean lines and the earthy colors say it all.....
