a visit to heath san francisco.
recently san francisco photographer mat rick took a visit to heath ceramics’ beautiful showroom space in the mission district and snapped some pics to share with you. heath has been in the bay area since 1948 with the original factory in sausalito, but only in recent years has opened shops in the city of san francisco — one at the ferry building, and this beautiful heath showroom built in 2012, complete with a blue bottle coffee kiosk. just looking at mat’s photos had me craving a cup of the good stuff — of course to be drunk from one of heath’s beautiful ceramic cups. heath’s factory is located here too, and you can even book tours of their factory and see how they turn clay into gorgeous tiles. i recently visited myself, and had a difficult time not buying every lovely thing in sight — including heath’s many ceramics, some great cookbooks, and home decor accessories.
