This weekend I took a few days off and headed to San Francisco, where I spent one delightful and inspiring afternoon at Heath Ceramics. I wanted to bring everything home! then figured it would be easier to just live in their glorious store! Spoiler: I finally settled for a pair of beautiful items to bring home and some lovely photos to share.
Founded in Sausalito, California, in 1948, Heath Ceramics products are handcrafted by skilled artisans in small runs in the Bay Area. They believe in “making good things for good people—the right way,” which is a philosophy that I love and support 100%.
Just look at these textiles. Swoon.
Car was not big enough to take home a bench, rug, pillows, and a chair… sad face. But, a functional and adorable match holder/striker from the studio came home with me instead. Win!
Those colors! Those patterns! It made me want to tile everything.
An aqua bud vase, just the thing for my console thankyouverymuch.
Books, ceramics, bags?! It was like I had entered a paradise made just for me.
Bonus: KAMA-ASA is featured for a few more days in the Heath Ceramics’ Boiler Room as part of their Playmountain East series. Minimal, gorgeous, and functional Japanese kitchen and home products are here in this stunning space until February 25, 2018.
If you are in the area, visit Heath Ceramics (and thank me later). Tartine Manufactory is also part of this amazing space, so stop by for a pastry before you get lost in Heath’s beautiful handmade wares. It will be an afternoon well spent, I promise!
