If I were in SF next week I'd be at the DWR hosted lecture by the people at Heath Ceramics
Here's the deal if you didn't follow the link:
"Heath Ceramics at DWR
Thursday, September 13, 6-8pm
"Heath Ceramics was started in Sausalito, California, in the mid-40s by Edith Heath, who believed that the hand of the maker should be visible in all of her designs. Present owners Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey purchased the company in 2003 with the intention of continuing Edith Heath's legacy as a designer, the company manufactures Edith's classic designs, as well as new designs in the original Sausalito Factory. Join us [DWR] for a lecture by the couple who will focus on Heath's history, her philosophy and how it influences us today. DWR has just introduced a bowl set with a glaze combination that's exclusive to us. Join us for an educational evening about a local institution. Refreshments from Izze soda will be served. RSVP to email@example.com by September 11. "
Heath is interesting if nothing else because - well - how can you afford to live in the Bay Area if you're not in tech or banking? Maybe someone will ask at the lecture....
