Heath Ceramics

During my most recent annual visit to San Francisco I finally made it out to Heath Ceramics, which is located just over the Golden Gate Bridge in Sausalito. I didn't have a chance to tour the factory, but was able to comb through their factory seconds store. I've always admired the simplicity and longevity of the Coupe pattern, the oldest line of tableware by Heath Ceramics which originated in the mid 1940's. I picked up three Coupe vegetable bowls in different colorways as the start of my newest collection and newfound obsession.

Of the Coupe Collection: "An example of modernism's honesty in materials, this timeless pattern stands out for its clean and simple lines."

Of Heath Ceramics' values: "Edith Heath founded Heath Ceramics with a strong social point of view about the products her company made - simple, good things for good people."

 

What others think:

  • Love how this doesn't just play off the perpetually round forms of the work itself, but contrasts the product with the place on the bold, sharp, edgy, boxy Gotham font. Really well done. Maybe it's just because I haven't used another font besides Gotham in about 3 years...?
