Courtesy Heath Ceramics
Elegant yet down-to-earth, this beloved Sausalito-based ceramics brand—a maker of pure and simple tiles and dinnerware for more than 65 years—outfits the tables of such Bay Area institutions as Chez Panisse and the Slanted Door. In 2010, Heath opened this shop in San Francisco’s Ferry Building, carrying the full breadth of its standard designs, plus limited-edition pieces you won’t find anywhere else.
