Beloved Sausalito potter Heath Ceramics made an appearance at this year's Dwell on Design Remodelista Local Market. Known for their beautiful variety of glazes and classic style, this modern American ceramics manufacturer has been manufacturing since 1948. At this year's show, Heath showed beautiful crafted serving bowls, cups and pitchers and their newest line of products: house numbers created with the fonts inspired by Los Angeles architect Richard Neutra and iconic designers Charles and Ray Eames.
Designed alongside House Industries, Heath owner Catherine Bailey confidently calls these the "newest and most exciting thing" for the company. Each designer had their own defining aesthetic and the fonts created for the series aptly reflected such: the Eames font has a hefty, playful look that instantly grabs attention, the Neutra, on the other hand, was unobtrusive.
The Heath house tiles were designed to cater to different homeowner personalities and come in a variety of colors. Bailey says: "The Eames typeface was really, really interesting and I wanted to try it in three dimensions...If people are looking for something different or abstract, they had the Eames. We also have Neutra, which is a beautiful modern classic for a balanced offering."
