Spotlight On: Heath Ceramics

A handpicked look at some of the most unique design and décor shops from around the globe. 

Since its founding in 1948, Heath Ceramics has been owned by two families – each committed to design, craftsmanship and quality in their own unique ways. As one of California’s last remaining mid-century era potteries, Heath continues to produce and sell handcrafted ceramics and a slew of other home goods at a myriad of West Coast locations, including an eponymous studio in Los Angeles.

From everything you need for entertaining to a specialty collection just for the lil’ ones, there’s no shortage of one-of-a-kind products to choose from. Below, we share a few of our favorites to infuse a little Heath into your home.   

1. Mid Century Coolade Pitcher + Cups, $420
One of the best things about California is the year-round outdoor entertaining weather and this colorful set is the perfect accessory. Inspired by mid-century factory glass, this conversation starter comes with one pitcher and two cups comprised of handmade, modern and functional glass.

2. Shibori Tea Towels, $32
A textile you’ll definitely want to display, whether used as kitchen or hand towels, these contemporary looking pieces are actually hand-dyed with indigo on 100% natural hemp fabric.

3. Winter Bud Vase Set, $104
A limited-edition item, these decorative accessories are perfect for displaying greenery or single buds - or pretty enough to simply be shown on their own. Inspired by the Northern California winter season, in particular the quiet tranquility of the forest, the set is comprised of vases in teal, aqua, juniper and bourbon hues.

4. Log Cabin Building Set, $10
Especially for the kiddos, this classic log cabin set encourages little ones to tap into their imaginations while learning the basics of building. Even better? The all wood pieces are made with food-approved dyes for safety.

5. Mid-Century Stencil Clock, $325
In homage to its mid-century roots, this timepiece was made in collaboration with Heath Ceramics and House Industries. Perfectly formed in clay, the bold numbers are inspired by 19th century French stencils.
