The Camellia Pattern, 2013

The Camellia Pattern, 2013

Alabama Chanin and Heath Ceramics collaborate again—this “point of intersection between stitch and clay”—releasing the Camellia pattern. Inspired by Alabama's state flower, the eponymous Camellia pattern is hand-etched by Heath Ceramics artisans in Opaque White and becomes an instant classic.
