Boo

Crossing over to the dark side while I try to avoid most things Halloween and prepare for the annual “fall back” into darkness. Here are just a few simplequietmodern points of inspiration.

and, the unexpected early release of Heath Ceramics Summer Seasonal Collection. In Spring greens ranging from bright speckled Canary to glossy vibrant emerald, you’ll be sure to find just the right piece to jump-start the season. I’m always partial to the trio of bud vases and the tall modern cup, but the Coupe Serving Platter, Dessert and Vegetable Bowls and Plaza Tray Set in this collection  look like they’re ready to step into service now, serving up the best offerings of Spring and Summer.

Perfect Timing

June 11, 2018

After a Winter that seemed endless and the shortest Spring ever, the timing is perfect for Heath Ceramics Summer Seasonal collection. From our favorite bud vases in Wildflower, Zinnia and Black Plum to the debut of new glazes like Sunset Fade on the Deep Serving Bowl and Sorbet on the Multi Stem Vase, it’s clear from where the inspiration was drawn..Summer flowers in pinks and oranges, glorious Summer sunsets and juicy late Summer fruits.
