Blogging American Craft Magazine: Heath Ceramics

"The machine doesn't decide what the shape is going to be; a human being has to decide that...Just because you make it by hand doesn't make it good, or a work of art."
- Edith Heath
We love Heath Ceramics and we talk about them, um, a lot. Yeah, you caught us. But in our defense, if Heath didn't produce such dang amazing products and didn't live and breathe the ideals of the perfect company, we wouldn't need to obsess. Need further proof that we're innocent here? More evidence below the jump... Check out this article in the latest issue of American Craft.

It retells the story of how Catherine Bailey and Robin Petravic swooped up and rekindled the 60-plus year Heath Ceramics and most importantly, what we can look forward to in the coming years (hint: 2nd generation Chez Panisse dinnerware).

For more on Heath Ceramics, be sure to visit their fantastic and newly updated website. And don't miss Robin and Catherine's house tour (try not to drool all over the keyboard).
