The original, since 1959: Where it all began. Each and every piece of our dinnerware — start-to-finish — is made here by a team of 40 craftspeople, almost exactly as it has been since the beginning. Designed in 1959 by Marquis & Stoller in collaboration with Edith & Brian Heath, the building's light-filled courtyard, Showroom, and sweeping semi-circle factory, emanate our values: timeless, resourceful, human-scale, and a marriage of craft and design.

The Original, Since 1959
Overstock Tile Shed
Our second quality and overstock tile, made in our San Francisco factory, find their way to our Overstock Tile Shed, ready for you to take home. Hundreds of glazes, dozens of shapes and sizes, in varying quantities. The selection changes daily, and the thrill of the hunt always makes a visit to the Shed worthwhile.
Overstock Tile must be purchased in-person (second quality and overstock tile can't be shipped or purchased sight unseen).
Inside Heath's Original Factory
At Heath, we have always integrated design and manufacturing under one roof, because we believe the best quality products are created when that connection is kept close. When designers are near the making process, and production teams interact with designers, we cultivate the opportunity to make new discoveries, even as we practice an ancient craft. In this factory, all together, we are continuously experimenting, learning, and developing our ideas. It’s not easy to capture all of this in two minutes, but our new short film about Sausalito aims to do just that.
Come inside. See what we're made of. 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.
