Heath + House

Over the weekend I went up to Los Angeles for House Industries’ event at Heath Ceramics. It was a lot of fun to be there and meet the people as well as see all the cool stuff  they make.

The show/set-up will be up through the end of year and I recommend checking it out if you are in the LA area. Continue reading →
