“The attractions of ceramics lie partly in its contradictions. It is both difficult and easy, with an element beyond our control. It is both extremely fragile and durable.” ― Isamu Noguchi
Founded in 1948 by Edith Heath and her husband Brian, San Francisco-based Heath Ceramics have long been creators of functional and beautiful tableware and home goods. Current owners and creative directors Cathy Bailey and Robin Petravic have helmed Heath since 2003. Under their guidance, Heath has stayed true to Edith’s original vision while ensuring sustainability and impeccable craftsmanship in their striking and modern designs. Alabama Chanin is proud to launch a new partnership with Heath Ceramics on Sunday. This week we honor Heath by exploring the company’s history, their values, and looking back at past collaborations.
