Heath Ceramics Honored By Museum of California Design

As kind of a bonus parting gift from the Dwell on Design conference, we got to meet Heath Ceramics owners husband-and-wife Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey, who were giving a talk with Michael Carabetta from Chronicle Books and Adam Brodsley from Volume, who published and designed the Heath Ceramics book respectively. Our friends at PrairieMod went one step further, having the foresight to arrange a studio tour of Heath while in town.

Turns out the Heath crew (including two-year-old Jasper, who also took the stage during the talk) jetted down to LA to accept the Museum of California Design’s 2007 Henry Award the next day, presented by tireless crusader Christopher Hawthorne at the home of Steven Ehrlich. The Henry Award, by the way, is named after industrial designer Henry C. Keck, who designed the Roadside Barrier Light. We think it’s quite fitting. Just like our perfect Heath pieces, it’s a simple, quintessentially Californian object we use every single day.
