The etched serving bowl ($375), like the entire Alabama Chanin line, is microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

As with Chanin's fashion, the Heath Ceramics pieces, such as this etched serving bowl ($375), are meant to become family heirlooms.
California pottery company Heath Ceramics outfits some of the top tables in the state, from Chez Panisse to our chichi friends' dinner parties. And now it's come out with a line of plates, dishes and linens with a look that dovetails so well with the current craze for the handmade, it's sure to commandeer even more tabletop real estate.
The new line is a collaboration with Natalie Chanin, a designer whose Alabama Chanin fashions made from recycled and sustainable materials are crafted in Florence, Alabama. Yet big-city fashionistas love her--she's twice been a Vogue Fashion Fund finalist.
Chanin's new tableware injects her trademark feminine style into Heath's charmingly clunky classics. Plates ($49 to $95) and bowls with the potter's signature brown rim are jazzed up with tiny rosebud or stitch etchings; attractively faded red, blue and cocoa tones easily mix with existing Heath pieces.
Other items include supersoft appliquéd jersey napkins (four for $44) and tea towels (two for $52) as well as felt place mats ($38). On our table, we think any or all of these pieces would look as welcoming as an heirloom quilt.
