Heath tile is made using a manganese clay body, which means the clay beneath the glaze has an earthy brown tone. It’s a signature of Heath, and has been part of our craft since Edith Heath first began making pottery in the 1940s, with clay she sourced herself in central California. Our glaze palette is designed to interact with and bring out the beauty of the natural clay. The variation, texture, and subtly shifting colors that result from that interaction are intentional, and something we celebrate. Our tile palette consists of 92 glazes that range from soft neutrals to bold, bright colors. Our tile specialists can guide you toward glaze selections, combinations, and installation patterns that work best for your project.
