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
Wait a Second... Overstock?
It’s a fact of factories: they develop overage. And our Sausalito factory is no exception. We’ve got discounted dinnerware that didn’t meet our first quality standards, discontinued items, samples, and one-of-a-kind prototypes — many in near perfect condition.
And of course, there’s our highly coveted overstock tile, which is only available in Sausalito and which must be purchased in-person (second quality and overstock tile can't be shipped or purchased sight unseen). Our inventory changes daily, so we invite you to stop by as often as you'd like, or, save yourself a trip and look at the overstock list (updated every Friday).
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.
