For centuries, the hearth has been an integral part of a home, offering warmth and comfort, a space for gathering with kin, and often being the central and most important aesthetic feature. In modern vernacular, the word has been generalized to refer to a homeplace or household, as in the terms "hearth and home" and "keep the home fires burning.” Hearth makes handmade, kiln fired goods for home enjoyment. Get cozy.
