Citysearch Editorial Review.
A staple in Sausalito since 1948, Heath’s handcrafted ceramics have a second home on a prime Mid-City stretch of Beverly Boulevard. The lofty, Commune-designed space features raw wood shelving, soaring ceilings and lots of natural light. A small gallery space that hosts works from rotating artists connects the retail area with studio director/resident potter Adam Silverman’s working studio, where he creates small-run and one-of-a-kind collaborations with Heath. Fans of mid-century modern design will appreciate Heathware’s seamless look and functionality, while those who want to "go green" can easily embrace the company’s low-fire process and eco-friendly policies. Lines of tableware range from the clean Coupe Line--in production since 1948--to the plates, bowls and accessories designed to grace the tables of Chez Panisse. You’ll also find gorgeous casseroles, vases, servers, pitchers and platters, including discounted second-quality selections and sample sale items. Beyond ceramics, Heath carries design and cook books as well as housewares like David Mellor’s stainless steel flatware; Edward Wohl’s hand-carved, birdseye-maple cutting boards; and hand-blown glassware from Esque.
