San Francisco-based designers Catherine Bailey and Robin Petravic used to work for firms such as Motorola and Burton Snowboards but they became fed up with corporate life and wanted a change. ­Although neither has a background in pottery, in 2003 they bought Heath ­Ceramics, a small but respected craft business based in Sausalito, founded by Edith Heath in 1948. It ­offered what they were looking for: it could be sustainable, focused on craft and was ripe for expansion. Bailey is now the managing director and Petravic the creative director.
