What's A Second?
What's a Second? A Second is a not-quite-right pot that we aren't able to sell at full-price. They are useful, functional, and food safe. There are so many reasons a pot can be a Second—they might be a little wonky and off-center, have minor pinholing, or funny little bumps under the surface we call "bloats."
Frequently Asked Questions
East Fork aims to use our power, resources, and platform to build co-conspiratorial relationships with grassroots justice movements to help achieve a more equitable world.
East Fork commits to contributing to the collective well-being of our community by leveraging our resources, energy, platform, and objects we make. We recognize that the most power-wielding institutions, systems, and societal norms do not support this outcome. We seek to champion and scale the impact of work being done in our community to build a new way of being.
Communities most impacted by systemic oppression know best how to address their own needs, and well-resourced, grassroots, justice movements led by people most impacted are our best hope for achieving our vision of a more equitable world. We strive to build co-conspiratorial relationships: soliciting the knowledge and guidance from our community partners before leveraging our assets accordingly.
To sustain this work, we aim to habitualize the ever-deepening practice of acknowledging, analyzing, and challenging the ways we benefit from white supremacy and perpetuate harm. This process starts first within ourselves—how am I complicit in supremacy? How am I causing harm to myself and others— and extends to our interpersonal relationships, then to our business, and—lastly—to our customers, investors, vendors, colleagues in the business community, and regional community members with power and influence.
We strive for meaningful community impact—not perfection.
It is our aspiration for each partnership that we move past transaction to transformation—for us, for you, and for our partners. In addition to your donation, we also encourage you to engage, support and uplift our partner’s meaningful work.
By working with grassroots initiatives and organizers we understand that this is the first time many of them will have consistent visibility at this level, and we want to be intentional in introducing them to our large and very engaged customer base. Because of the nature of our partnership, we find it is our duty as we introduce our partners to protect their first priority: the work.
We hope that you follow, share, donate, and support our partner. However, please be respectful when engaging and remember that our partners are not indebted to us or to you because of a donation. Be mindful of their time and energy.
If you have any questions about our community partnerships or our approach to community work, please reach out to East Fork at email@example.com.

Yes! You may even find that we carry a limited supply of Seconds inventory from retired seasonal glazes.
Unfortunately, we don't offer the ability to show specific Seconds pots to customers before they buy online. Occasionally, we love to open our Asheville factory for in-person Seconds sales for folks that live locally.
All seconds are final sale. Seconds are not eligible for returns or exchanges. Please be sure to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have!
