Sausalito-based Heath Ceramics recently opened its first satellite operation in LA, in collaboration with noted potter Adam Silverman. Inspired by iconic mid-century design houses, Heath Los Angeles features an on-site workshop where studio director and potter Adam Silverman produces one-of-a-kind and custom small run works. LA-based Commune Design masterminded the look of the new studio and has designed a line of table linens featuring the collective’s distinctive retro/modern/organic vibe. Currently only available in LA; order by phone at Heath.
