HEATH CERAMICS NEW SEASONAL COLLECTION

Moment-in-time creations which only are released in the summer and winter, this collection's theme is a winter at the beach. There are limited so if you love them, you need to snag them. 

The breakfast tea set is my personal favorite.  ABOUT HEATH:  Heath Ceramics was founded by another husband and wife team, Edith and Brian Heath.  When the duo moved from Chicago to San Francisco in the early 1940s, Edith—who’d had little formal training in the area—began making ceramics. In 1944, she held a one-woman exhibition at the Legion of Honor, where her work was noticed by Gump's, a respected design store in San Francisco. They commissioned Edith to create an exclusive dinnerware collection for them, and when more retail orders started coming in, the couple officially founded Heath Ceramics in Sausalito, California in 1948. In 1959, their business expanded into the factory which still houses our dinnerware manufacturing today. The building was designed in collaboration with the Heaths and Marquis and Stoller Architects. Edith designed her pieces for a single kiln-firing, at a lower-than-normal temperature, thus saving energy while producing a remarkably durable product. Her work led to advances in clay and glaze development, securing Heath a unique place in ceramic history, along with design awards including the Industrial Arts Award from the American Institute of Architects. Many of Edith’s original pieces are a part of the permanent collections of museums such as MOMA and LACMA.
