heath ceramics open studios was this last sunday. everything about heath is pretty incredible. from the history of the factory to the new owners. robin petravic (one half of the wonderful husband and wife team that rekindled heath) gave us our tour. i was suprised to learn how holistic heath's process is- edith heath even worked with a ucb chemistry professor to develop her own recipe for the clay that's used to this day.

unlike the usual weekend tour, this weekend they had live demonstrations and a little station where we were able to paint our own heath tiles! the seconds store is a real score as well. i took home a lovely set of mugs and a pitcher. my collection is slowly growing...a few more photos of the factory here.
