Product Overview

Durable, honest, and handsome, Heath ceramics are design icons. Much collected, these signature tableware and tiles are still made according to the artisanal tradition that Edith Heath conceived in the mid-1940s, when she founded the company it is one of the few remaining mid-century American potteries in Sausalito, California. Now the remarkable history, legacy, and craft of these ceramics, as well as the story of the woman who created them, are told for the first time in word and hundreds of archival and newly commissioned images. Heath's work has been an inspiration to numerous luminaries in diverse fields. Among those contributing their insights to the book are dwr.com founder Rob Forbes, restaurateur Alice Waters, design maven Agnes Bourne, and many more. "Heath Ceramics" is the celebration of this classic pottery that is still part of today's design scene.
