Heath Ceramics creates tableware and tiles that are as timeless as they are handsome. Found in home kitchens and high-end restaurants, these signature pieces are still made in small runs at Heath's Sausalito and San Francisco factories according to the artisanal tradition conceived by potter Edith Heath in the mid-1940s. A luxe and beautiful volume, now back in print, Heath Ceramics recounts the remarkable legacy of the company, its wares, and the woman who started it all. Striking photography, text from visionaries like restaurateur Alice Waters and Design Within Reach founder Rob Forbes, and a newly updated introduction from Heath owners Catherine Bailey and Robin Petravic complete the celebration of this enduring pottery.
