A little off beaten path but a fine place to see and purchase ceramic food ware. Alway muddy parking lot and something’s different to park as the industrial park is humming along. Try weekend. Look for sales in late November.

Heath ceramics are beautiful, and never cheap. On the other hand, I've been collecting their small bud vase for years and, at $19 to $25 apiece, they won't break me. Weck glass vessels and storage are great too. Best of all, I got free shipping...More

I have been visiting Health Ceramics for many years. They make beautiful pottery. If you've never been to working pottery you might find this interesting. The tour is free. This is a treasure of Sausalito!!
