Antique Item of the Week
Heath Ceramics is a manufacturer of artisan pottery including tableware, bowls, tile, mugs and vases in California. Heath Ceramics was founded in 1948 in Sausalito, California by Edith Heath (1911–2005) after her work was stocked by the Gump’s store in San Francisco. The company currently has a production factory and store in Sausalito and a ceramics studio and store in Los Angeles, California.
Heath Ceramics is owned by Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey, and is known for its distinctive glazes and handcrafted stoneware. Bailey, who purchased the company in 2004, described Heath’s wares as maintaining a tradition of utility and beauty that is “true to the materials.” Innovative Alice Waters, founder and chef of the renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California, uses dinnerware produced by Heath Ceramics in the restaurant.
Heath Ceramics has begun collaborating with other artists and
designers. Heath has partnered with potter Adam Silverman to direct its on-site studio in Los Angeles. The designer Christina Kim collaborated with Heath Ceramics in a project “to translate the ethereal spirit of her ‘Phases of the Moon’ fashion collection into ceramics.” in 2005 The Los Angeles Heath store carries the company’s dinnerware, serving pieces, and vases, as well as original pieces in ceramic and other media including hand-blown glass and textiles. The store also hosts shows by other ceramic artists. The store hosted a community event, in 2009, with Charles Phoenix, the retro-historian vintage slide collector, and local history entertainer.
Heath Ceramics has taken measures to minimize its environmental impact during production including firing its clay at lower temperatures, reusing clay scraps, and recycling water, and in transportation by using paper instead of styrofoam as the packing material.
