Heath Ceramics is crafting a brand spankin' new project - but this one is sans pottery or glaze. The legendary Sausalito-based tableware and tile ceramicists just revealed exciting plans to open a 4,000-square-foot retail space and 16,000-square-foot manufacturing warehouse in SF’s Mission neighborhood by early 2012.
Although it doesn't look like much now (above), husband-and-wife owners Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey will spend the rest of the year sprucing up and swanking out the large, new digs on Florida and 18th Street. The duo explained, “we’ll be able to realize many of our ideas that we were never able to in our tight quarters.” And the historic Sausalito building–which Heath has been creating from since 1959–will remain unchanged and continue to produce their awesomely handcrafted dinnerware. Can't wait!
