Heath Ceramics Tile

I was familiar with Heath Ceramics, one of the few remaining mid-century American potteries still in existence, only for their beautiful hand-crafted tableware, but I recently discovered that the Sausalito-based company makes unbelievable tile, in fact, Edith Heath became the first non-architect to win the AIA Gold Medal Award for the exterior tile on Pasadena's Norton Simon Museum. Check out the Heath website for more info, especially if you're about to do any kind of renovations.
