Factory Tours


Welcome in! At Heath, we manufacture all of our products in two small Bay Area factories. In our original 1959 building in Sausalito and our San Francisco tile facility, work is centered around Edith and Brian Heath's founding values: design integrity, material resourcefulness, and human-scale production. The result is beautiful, useful objects that last. Come visit us and see how we keep the wheels spinning!

Sausalito Dinnerware Factory Tour

Among the houseboats and artist studios of Sausalito is Heath's original 1959 factory, where our dinnerware shapes are still formed, glazed, trimmed and fired. We are hosting working tours on Friday mornings, and non-working tours every Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday.

Register for a factory tour of Sausalito.

San Francisco Tile Factory Tour

In the urban heart of San Francisco’s Mission District is our tile factory and showroom, along with the Heath Clay Studio and a collective of designer-maker studios. We are hosting working tours every Friday and non-working tours every Saturday through the end of November.

Register for a factory tour of San Francisco.

What to expect

Tour groups are limited in size and require advance RSVP. Each tour lasts approximately 1 hour. Admission is $15.

For safety, all participants must be aged 5 or older. Closed-toe shoes are required. Protective eyewear will be provided while in the factory area. At the end of the tour, we welcome you into the showroom to browse and shop!


CLAY MAKING

In the Mix

Take a peek inside our clay making drum, and you’ll find Edith Heath’s proprietary clay formula mixing with water to form the clay mixture called “slip.” To reduce waste, dry clay trimmings are placed back into the drum to be repurposed and reused.
