Last night I had the pleasure of hanging out at the opening of the Heath Ceramics and House Industries partnership and it ended up being a great night. House had taken up a good chunk of the space at Heath and had aw ide variety of things for sale like their signature cast ampersands, their Alexander Girard nativity scene and Eames blocks. Made specially for the show though were these tiny wooden birds which were hand silkscreened with alternating patterns on each side. I got an amazing red and white one that’s really beautiful.
It was also nice to be able to meet both Andy Cruz from House Industries as well as Catherine Bailey who is the co-owner of Heath. As I said in my previous post I’ve been a big fan of House Industries for a long while now so it was a huge pleasure to chat with andy about the show and find out all the work that was involved. For example, the birds that they created were inspired by a recent trip to Japan after he was trying to find a good gift to bring home. Catherine was extremely nice as well and she and her story are a big inspiration for me.
There’s a bunch more pictures under the cut, be sure to take the time and check those out. If you’re in the L.A. area and you missed the show I think it’s going to be up until the end of the year, so be sure to stop by and see it.
