Heath Ceramics' newest seasonal collection features an upscale picnic bag that comes with a caddy and two three-piece place settings, plus features a wine slot and and a pocket for linens and flatware. The bag is multi-purpose and is "made to last a lifetime (just like your Heathware), from industrial materials," by designer/maker S. Stein in Santa Fe, N.M. Available April 1-October 1, picnic set, $548; bag alone, $348. Comes in persimmon (shown) and olive (see gallery).
The collection also offers a variety of pieces that don't look especially summery (the colors are more fall-like) but are nice enough to use all year, indoors or out. They are: two styles of bowl, a bud vase, a bud vase set, a bulb vase, two single-stem vases, a vase set with all three kinds, and a two- or four-cup set. See the gallery for a few photos of these simple, lovely pieces.
