East Fork, founded in 2010 by Alexander Matisse, sits at the end of a valley, between steep green mountains, near Asheville, North Carolina. 
Our objects are made 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 unconstrained by time and place.

Serve well

Ruka Kikuchi (nickname Lue) makes these brass utensils at his studio in Setouchi, Japan.  All of the works stocked are handmade by Lue himself and feature unique markings, such as little scratches and hammer marks where the craftsman has been at work.

As time progresses you'll find that each item will patina and darken as the metal oxidizes, also reacting to the natural oils on ones hands.  Functional modern design handmade for everyday living.


East Fork Stationery


For our first collection of two dimensional work, John Vigeland brought his slip-trailed decoration to paper.  We distilled four designs to their essential components and had them letter pressed locally on a beautiful, warm cream paper.  Each pack comes with four different cards and envelopes.
