The Heath Ceramics
store in the Ferry Building Marketplace opened today, a few days ahead of its projected April opening. The Sausalito-based ceramic maker, beloved by both Dwell
and Alice Waters, replaces Tsar Nicoulai
, which moved out early in January.
The factory will be occasionally making items only for the store. For instance, in honor of the new store, it has produced a small series of nested bowls with wide, unglazed lips and acid-green glaze. Only 50 sets were made, so if you want a look at these you'd better get on MUNI today.Heath Marketplace
