New Summer Colors from Heath Ceramics

I was in the Heath Ceramics shop in Los Angeles this past weekend, borrowing a few pieces for a photo shoot, and I spotted their lovely new Summer Collection, a limited-edition series of new colors and items available only through October 1st. The color palette—California Poppy, Grapefruit, and Birch—goes nicely with Heath's signature exposed clay, which peeks through at the rim or bases of bowls, vases, and cork-topped containers.

Coverings 2012: Fireclay Tile

Artisanal tile company Fireclay was at Coverings for the first time this year and exhibited their brand of glass and ceramic tile that's a treat to look at and boasts some mighty strong environmental creds. The company, based in San Jose, California, was founded in 1986 and churns out thousands of pieces of tile, which is all made in the United States. They launched a couple new lines, Crush (a tile made from 100% recycled glass) and the Runway Collection by Austin-based designer Kelly LaPlante, along with some tried and tested favorites.

PUTIKMADE Pottery

Set to debut in May at the Garden Festival at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, the UPO line of L.A.-made ceramic pots looks like a winning addition to any outdoor space. Better yet, as PUTIKMADE founder Cynthia Vargas tells me, you can scoop them up now on the young company's Etsy page.

Children's dinnerware set by <a href="http://www.heathceramics.com/go/heath/homeware/store/index.cfm?catID=54#shop">Heath Ceramics</a>, $135.00.

New Kids' Line from Heath

Ok, ok—so we here at Dwell are known for our unabashed love of all things Heath. But in our defense, they make it really difficult not to love them whenever they roll out new products. Case in point: their new line of designs tailored to the littlest modernists out there. We're swooning over the pint-sized, three-piece dinnerware sets; bowls; and utensils in their kids' line. And their factory puzzle is pretty awesome, too (plus it won't break if your tyke causes it to tumble to the floor).

Ridge Nesting Bowls

Form and function have to meet when it comes to our daily dishes. And though you might suffer for the sake of a handsome serving dish, why bother when something as striking as these stoneware Ridge Nesting Bowls from J Schatz comes along. Debuted last month, this trio of bowls is the latest from J Schatz and presages a big move for the New York brand. "We have been transitioning all of our current product lines into stoneware,"Jim Schatz told me. "We plan on completing the transition by the end of the year."
