East Fork Pottery

East Fork, founded in 2010 by Alexander Matisse, sits at the end of a valley, between steep green mountains, near Asheville, North Carolina. 
The objects we make are entirely by hand, from North Carolina clay, in a dirt-floored workshop that smells of wood-smoke and pine.  We value old-world craftsmanship and an aesthetic quality that is  unconstrained by time and place. 

Fundamental and Simple.  We hope they serve you well--through 2,000 trips in the dishwasher, for decades to come until they are chipped and weary--and brings you as much joy to use as they bring us to make.
