Chef and restauranteur Alice Waters is known for her commitment to serving impeccable, locally-sourced ingredients, but her attention to detail not only goes into what is served on the plate, but also the plate itself. Her choice for dinnerware is the sustainable Heath Ceramics, made in nearby Sausalito, CA. Waters and Heath have collaborated on a line, called Chez Panisse, which is available to the public.

Waters is not the only chef opting for the mid-century designed tableware for their restaurant. Chef Charles Phan, a former ceramist, uses Heath Ceramics at the Slanted Door. “The woman who founded it, Edith Heath, passed away and they sold the company to a couple. What is amazing about it is that she got this specific recipe for clay and the glazes are fired at a lower than normal temperature and they are very strong. It’s that perfect balance for ceramics.”

Chef Anne Quatrano sells the pottery in her store Star Provisions and uses it at her restaurant Floataway Café, both in Atlanta. “It’s sturdy and attractive pottery.”

Edith Heath began throwing the modernist-designed pottery in 1948, making cups, bowls and plates. In 2004, Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey bought the business and have turned it into a trade must-have, customizing serving dishes for Four Seasons Hotels worldwide and the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel.
