We love Heath Ceramics. This local company, now over sixty years old, still maintains its original factory in Sausalito, where it continues to make its iconic tableware (and hold its famous annual sales). Heath Ceramics is well-known for its organic, clean lines and beautiful hues. Its status as a Bay Area icon is cemented by Heath’s presence in the Ferry Building, amongst other local favorites. Relatively recently, it also opened a San Francisco factory and store, where it’s newer tile line is manufactured. The SF location holds factory tours and also hosts workshops (not to mention another SF icon, Blue Bottle Coffee).
On our latest visit to the Potrero Hill location, we were also delighted to discover a number of newly curated makers. Heath selects lesser known artists to display and sell their wares at their SF store on a rotating basis. We enjoyed the Dashi Katachi: Essence of Japan display. The table displays were inspiring and blended well with Heath staples. In addition to tableware, the SF store includes a selection of textiles, books, jewelry, bags and even the most adorable items for kids, including their Heath Kids Dinnerware Set (and non-breakables too). We can’t wait to see what pop-ups next.
