  2. Matti says:

    Wow, there has to be a place in SF that carries his goods and will check out…. Perfect for Union Square area. Looks to have a Scandinavia influence.
    Viola, love the socks.


  3. Matti says:

    Yep, found it…Ferry Building. I go by there on my way to work…will check out. Matti

  4. Those health ceramics pieces are beautiful. As if I didn’t already wnat summer enough, these just sealed it.

    Thanks for sharing those! Love blue and yellow together.

  5. Julie says:

    The secret basket is a very nice idea. What do you tie the rope to in order to keep the basket in the air?

  6. Courtney says:

    Love everything Heath. My breath catches just seeing those avocado and verde glazes…

  12. Hmm.. Maybe I’m just missing it, I can’t find that collection anywhere on their site.

      the collection launches in april- it’s not out yet. these are preview images :)


  13. Hello!

    Julie:I completely forgot to take a photo of the rope when it is tied. Viola ties it on the side of the shelf, that you see in the background. BUT we are going to buy a hook for her to tie the rope to instead of the shelf. I just have to find a nice one.

  14. Sasha K. says:

    Gorgeous! Love the colors. So perfect for summer.

  15. Sharinaz says:

    I don’t know what it is, but the colors for the heath ceramics are just the right shades of summer….i guess its called beautiful!!

  16. laura Evans says:

  18. Theresa says:

  19. DaynaGedney says:

  20. tigress says:

    i love all things heath. but this new collection, it is beyond. and the color combo just happens to be that of my kitchen…oh dear, i’m in trouble.

  21. Heath ceramics – always perfect, but those photos are TRULY spectacular! The that basket is an awesome idea! Lucky Viola!

    Matti-Gump’s carries Heath ceramics. A Gump’s Buyer bought the original line from Edith when she was just starting her career, now it is back.
