Heath Ceramics summer 2010 collection

Heath Ceramics just posted a sneak peak of their Summer 2010 collection -- Ocean Breeze. From their newsletter:

This season we bring you Ocean Pacific, a three-color pattern created by two glazes. It starts with aqua — each piece is hand-dipped. Once dry (within moments), the piece is dipped again, this time in zest yellow. In the area where the aqua and zest overlap, another vibrant yellow is created. The resulting pattern resembles the horizon line of the sea on a bright summer day — the inspiration palette for the 2010 Summer Collection.
