Introducing... Blue Ridge Black Mountain

Blue Ridge and Black Mountain

Our home is in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

After a summer spent across the sea, the season shifts and we ground back into place, welcoming Black Mountain and Blue Ridge into our Core Collection and, with it, sharing stories of our Southern Appalachian home.

Meet Blue Ridge

Deep water, wild blueberries, night sky. A serious, grounded, toned-down navy.

Stately and grounded, strong and serene. The Blue Ridge Mountains cradle the East Fork factory from the north and the south. Holding us, always, and witnessing it all—even when we lose sight of them.

It’s a dense blue with a warm, earthy base.  We love it with white oak, sterling silver, white walls, with Eggshell & Amaro.

Black Mountain

Sleek and quiet, wise and proud. The area now called Black Mountain was first called Grey Eagle by the Catawba and Cherokee Indians that first—and still—call this land home.  It’s a metallic-hued, grey-tinged matte black.

We love it with walnut, brass, concrete, Morel & Panna Cotta.

Getting the Shot

To set the tone for our season of sharing stories from Southern Appalachia, the content team took a Parkway field day with 50 lbs of pottery strapped to each of our backs. 

We hiked through the wildflower meadow at the base of Sam’s Knob—past rattlesnake root, filmy angelica, aster, Michaux’s saxifrage, and wild blueberries.  Then down to Flat Laurel Creek—a crystal clear high-mountain stream teeming with native Brook trout that cascades in waterfalls over slow sloping boulders for 1.5 miles before joining the West Fork of the Pigeon River.
