Heath Ceramics Workshop

Edith Heath (1911-2005) founded Heath Ceramics in 1948 with a goal of making simple, good things for people. In 2003, industrial designer Catherine Bailey and engineer husband, Robin Petravic, bought  Heath from Edith who was in her nineties at the time. They have forged onward continuing to nurture Edith's legacy. With over 60 years under it's belt, Heath Ceramics stands as an iconic American company still known for making simple, functional, and thoughtful things. The original factory is located in Saulsalito, California and stores can be found in San Francisco and Los Angeles.  

Last week I attended a super fun workshop at the LA Heath Shop with gal pal, Lydia, of Apples and Onions LA, where studio director, Adam Silverman (and his fabulous assistant Alex) taught us how to make their signature bud vases and then sent us home with copies of his recently published book. 

We can't wait to see the finished product!! I will post an update as soon as we receive them!
