Durable, Beautiful Pottery
We make pottery with care and intention, rooted in community, celebrating those who make it and those who use it.
Our pots come in a thoughtful palette of 6 year-round colors and a rotating cast of punchy seasonals. How you build your set is up to you—mix and match or go monochrome. Go tonal or high contrast.

East Fork in the News
“Emotionalism aside, there are often other reasons a mug becomes favored: a nice grip, a good size, or just regular ol’ aesthetics. But what if there was a platonic ideal of a mug that brought all those things together? The folks at East Fork have, after many, many iterations, perhaps done just that — and legions of happy customers agree.”
“East Fork's streamlined products are particularly appealing. House-made glazes in muted earth and jewel tones often reveal speckles of iron from the North Carolina clay. Hand-thrown and jigger-pressed bowls and plates, with fluid forms and low profiles, have a satisfying heft but aren't clunky.”
“Building a pottery brand with lofty ambitions from scratch sounds like a tricky task. But East Fork is doing just that - and hoping to help revitalize the once-powerful US tableware industry while they’re at it.”
