Hello friends– Spent a sweet weekend with out kids in San Francisco, including a sunny morning ferry ride across the bay to Sausalito and an long awaited tour through the Heath ceramics factory. All that clay mixing, form setting, edge trimming and color testing– It was an amazing view of the whole pottery process. (photo above is samples from the ceramics painting station)
All aboard at the ferry, along with a few hundred other day trippers, we skimmed across the Bay to the northern peninsula.
The Heath factory was smaller and much more hands-on than I’d imagined. We strolled past vats of mud/clay, the mold room, and the kilns that dropped from the ceiling. Last stop the gift shop, all that tempting pottery!!
We had a quick lunch from the Deli counter at Driver’s Market with Brian’s parents, Kai & Jackie, who met up with us for the tour. My pick– the “pig & fig sandwich” — golden fig jam, prosciutto, and manchego on crunchy bread with a mango orange soda. oh yumm!
Then back across the Bay to San Francisco– to hang out with baby Mae. Now I call that a near perfect day. Thanks Ani & Brian for dragging us along on the grand adventure.
