Heath Ceramics

Fall colors in ceramic. Edith Heath began throwing her simple, modernist bowls, cups and plates in 1948, before Sausalito became the land of cheap trinkets and stunning, tourist-obscured views. Now, Heath Ceramics have become a "Hot Product" but we love seeing them creep back into design stores, where they rightfully belong...

Dwell points out that the Heath style came out of "the Depression-era traditions that defined California pottery," and they suggest that such an aesthetic may once again be appropriate to the times. Interesting point. Grace over at Design*Sponge says no that "no visit to San Francisco would be complete without a visit to Heath." Here's pics from her recent visit.

We particularly like the "Rim Line" shown here. You can find Heath items in New York at the MoMA Design stores; Moss in Soho; Sublime in Tribeca, or Matter in Brooklyn. Or, you can buy direct from the site.

NOTE: Every two weeks Heath puts out a list of overstock items (bottom of this page) where you can find great tile at discount prices. Nice.
