Heath Ceramics – Handcrafted Tableware and Tile

Heath’s newest Winter Seasonal Collection

In celebration of our new Handcrafter Color Collection, we have partnered with companies that specialize in the making of handcrafted items for the home. Our BISQUE color family honors the tradition of ceramics in America. A natural choice for this color family is Heath Ceramics, one of few remaining mid-century American potteries.

Heath Ceramics was founded by potter Edith Heath in 1948 and over sixty years later, still makes product in small runs in their original Sausalito, California factory. Highly skilled craftspeople produce quality, durable pieces that stay true to Edith Heath’s original designs and vision, including using the same clay and many of the original glaze colors.

Heath Ceramics has recently expanded their production to San Francisco where their new tile factory is open and producing beautiful, handcrafted tile. A mural in the factory artfully traces Heath’s history, depicting in pictures the growth of the company.   Factory tours are available in Sausalito where you can see firsthand Heath’s commitment to manufacturing in America.
