Catherine Bailey and Robin Petravic know design. Today they lead Heath Ceramics by incorporating design-led manufacturing principles and believing that responsible business practices lead to long-term business viability. Bailey sets the direction and creative vision as creative director. Petravic manages all operations, manufacturing, and business development as managing director.

Edith Heath founded Heath Ceramics in 1948 after her solo pottery show at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor and served as a faculty member at CCA(C) in the 1950s. Today, more than 60 years later, Heath Ceramics, based in Sausalito, California, is considered among the most enduring examples of mid-century design. Found in restaurants, homes, and museums worldwide, its products are synonymous with simple, functional, thoughtfully designed tableware and tile.
