House Industries at Heath Los Angeles

Letters, numbers, ceramics and craftsmanship collide in a month-long House Industries exhibition at the Heath Los Angeles studio and store. House will transform the legendary tile and tableware maker’s airy Beverly Boulevard space into an unprecedented emulsion of clay, metal, ink, cotton, wood, lacquer, lithography and letterforms.

The exhibition will feature several new objects including custom-fired House-Heath tiles, reclaimed wood end-grain tiles, hand-printed folding plywood divider screens, tree ornaments, letterpressed greeting cards and much more. Heath also stocks hard-to-find House classics such as the Eames House blocks and the Alexander Girard Nativity.

Great Article, I thought the writing was great. It is House Industries I have the problem with. A once promising foundry seems to be digressing in a digital world. Sure they can blame it on piracy blah blah blah, but really they should be innovating rather than looking inward.

I just think it’s a shame they are missing the mark. None of what they have done in the last 3 years has been inspiring or encouraging for a once promising foundry.

I LOVE House & hope to see the show tonight!

What you said is quite insightful. I must say you helped me a lot. keep up the good work!

Agree with Lloyd on this one.
Loved their work, bought their libraries when they first came out. Gotta say it seems like lately they are just remixing their earlier achievements in different forms and formats. Charles Spencer Anderson went the same way..

House Industries is one of the great American type foundries. Their work is continually impressive and their products are second to none. Long live House Industries!

I’m a fan of both House and Heath and wish I could see this in person!
