Commune Linens

These Bauhaus-inspired table linens were designed by Commune Design for Heath Ceramics. Known for their collaborative design process, use of natural materials and handmade craft, they have worked with some of the most design focused brands in the industry. Folks like the Ace Hotel, the Standard, Barney’s New York, Heath Ceramics, and the list goes on.

These beautiful handcrafted textiles feature a ‘threaded ticking detail on the napkins, placemat and tablecloth, juxtaposed against a subtle backdrop complementing Heathware perfectly. The table napkins are generously sized. Commune linens are made from 100% washed and piece-dyed linen that gets softer and more beautiful with each use.’

A joy to use, enhancing the design experience of the meal.

BottleHood

Beautiful wine bottles destined for landfills, repurposed into artful and unique glassware for your table by BottleHood.  Offered by Heath Ceramics, they are a wonderful addition to the tabletop. I’ve noticed these glasses recently in magazine styling shots, recognizable by their unique form at the base, and subtle color variation. Wine bottles typically have a thick wall, which is perfectly repurposed into durable and long lasting glassware. A fun visual conversation starter for your next dinner party, the sustainable philosophy paired with the beautiful form and color is just irresistible.

A Match Made In Heath-en


When highly-acclaimed ceramic powerhouse Heath Ceramics pairs up with a local artist, you pay attention. And when that local artist is none other than Los Angeles-based artist Geoff McFetridge, you really listen up.


Thus, the latest collaboration between Heath Ceramics and Geoff McFetridge is one for the stars. Debuting in Los Angeles with a show entitled My Head Disappears When My Hands Are Thinking, the new line features graphic illustrations on timeless clay. A perfect combination, yes?


Congrats, Heath & Geoff! We hope to see much, much more from the both of you.

You’ve Got My Number

This spring Heath Ceramics is introducing a drop-dead-gorgeous new line of house numbers. These 3-dimensional clay tiles celebrate the legendary Neutra and Eames number fonts. Of course they would be fitting on a midcentury modern house, in fact I'd love them on mine, but I can also imagine them gracing the interior of a home as each tile is a spectacular work of art.
 
Founded by Edith Heath in the mid-fourties, Heath ceramics is one of the few remaining mid-century american potteries still in existence today. They have been making tableware and tile for over a half-century in their Sausalito California studio. Their time honored process is one of quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. I believe every bit of the artful design and preparation of their work is reflected in the collectible pieces they produce. A glimpse into the tile making process for these newly introduced house numbers, gives us insight into their custom color development, and handcraft. All of Heath ceramics’ clay is made on-site. It’s extruded and cut into pieces in preparation for forming. The clay is pressed and then cut into specific sizes for an order. Edges of the tiles are hand finished and glazes are made on-site and applied by hand. A recognizable brand, I love the fact that the original box designed 40 years ago, is still used today. Timeless.
