Heath Ceramics

Heath Ceramics is one of the few remaining mid-century American potteries and has been making tableware and tile for over a half-century in its Sausalito, California factory. A crew of 40 skilled craftspeople (many honing their skills at Heath for 20+ years) still make every product on the premises, often utilizing the methods and techniques developed by Edith Heath throughout her life. In 2003, husband and wife team, Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey purchased Heath Ceramics with a mission to revitalize the company by placing a strong emphasis on design, while preserving Edith Heath’s handcrafted techniques and designer-maker legacy. Heath now makes both classic and new designs with the highest level of craftsmanship that ensures an enduring quality and aesthetic. Today, facing new economic and environmental issues, business challenges and politics, Heath remains a small and privately owned local manufacturer in order to be able to stay true to its core values in the making of products: focusing on great design and craft and making responsible and holistic decisions for the long-term benefit of our customers and our employees.
