We took a little field trip out to Sausalito to check out the Heath Ceramics
factory and store. We started our set of Heath dishes a couple of
years ago and have put together a good set of dinnerware. As the
ladyfriend repeatedly said after our tour, "Now I'm even happier with
our Heath dishes." When you learn what goes into them and how they are truly hand-crafted, their beauty goes beyond the glaze.

Every dish is handmade and the entire process takes place in their
Sausalito factory - from making the clay to forming the dishes to mixing
the glazes to firing. Each dish is checked for quality, and if they
don't meet the standards, they become "seconds" sold only at the factory

We lucked out and bought a set of "seconds" house numbers in the Neutra style. Can't wait to install them!
