LOCALLY SOURCED CERAMICS
Since Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey took over Heath Ceramics
in 2003, they’ve continued working with some of the country’s best
restaurants, creating dinnerware lines with two of them: Alice Waters’s
Chez Panisse in 2006, and, in 2016, Tartine, whose outpost at Heath’s
Mission District location inspired a bright new glaze—Tartine Teal (above).
The collection features Heath’s signature rim, and extends the company’s
70-year tradition of sourcing clay from Lincoln, California. At left, a potter
throws a vase at Heath Clay Studio in San Francisco, where experiments
with shapes and glazes happen with little commercial pressure.
