Welcome to our virtual tour
Every aspect of our tableware production, from clay-making to kiln-firing, is done right here in our Sausalito factory. The building was built in 1959 for Heath Ceramics. It was designed by the mid-century architecture firm Marquis & Stoller in collaboration with Edith Heath.

Sausalito Dinnerware Factory Tour
The original. Among the houseboats and artist studios is the original 1959 factory, where our clay is made, and our dinnerware shapes are formed, glazed, trimmed and fired. We have a working tour each Friday, and weekend tours Saturday and Sunday.
San Francisco Tile Factory Tour
In the heart of San Francisco’s Northeast Mission neighborhood, and at the center of a creative campus that houses our Heath retail showroom, Tartine Manufactory, and viewing court area, is our tile factory. You can get a sneak peek of the workings from various points in the building, but you shouldn’t miss the full factory tour in person.
