Heath Ceramics studio director Tung Chiang spent three months hunkered down at his home, exploring various design ideas and glazes for the company’s latest biannual seasonal collection, collaborating with co-owner and creative director Catherine Bailey and his studio team via videoconference. The 2020 Winter Seasonal Collection, which Tung coined “Seasons of Hope,” conveys strength and simplicity. The collection’s beautifully crafted pieces—a bud vase, sprout vase, teapot and cups, plaza tray, butter dish and small pitcher—each sport a gradient glaze. “Working as a creative in this tough time strangely helped me focus,” Chiang says. “Isolation translated to concentration. The quiet gave me the chance to explore the meaning of design. Ultimately, this collection is about inspiring hope and love.”
