Shop Updates

• Our pre-order pottery lead time is currently just 4 weeks for a limited time. This is the shortest lead-time we’ve had in a looong time and it’ll move back up to 6-8 weeks come March 14th. 

The Mug in all 5 glazes are in-stock and ready to ship in 3-5 business days, as do all other non-pottery pantry, kitchentabletop, and small batch objects. 

• What's with the pre-order? We pack our kilns we have as tight as they can get, and make sure they fire every single night. And if you're here for an update about the kilns we ordered nearly a year ago, we're afraid they're still in Turkey.

Last spring, when the state went into quarantine, we shifted to a pre-order model. It's not what we want to do forever, but for now, it's helped us navigate running the business during the pandemic And it has its perks! Yes, you have to wait up to 4 weeks for your pots to be made and shipped to you, but it eliminates the complicated forecasting equation that asked us to predict demand by color and form. Now you can order exactly the forms and colors you want without having to outmaneuver other shoppers or get shut out if something you wanted sold out.
You can pre-order pottery in Amaro, Eggshell, Morel, Panna Cotta and Pinto right here.

• Pinto, our seasonal glaze in collaboration with Samin Nosrat, is now live. 10% of proceeds from our Pinto Collection go to Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project to help fund its efforts to open The DEEP, a worker-owned grocery cooperative in East Oakland, California, as well as its other youth development and food justice programs. Pinto is is made to order and ships in about 4 weeks.

 Spread Wealth, Shop Seconds! For the months of January, February and March, we are asking you to direct funds to PODER Emma, a grassroots organization based in Asheville that creates and sustains networks of cooperative ownership and action in Emma, North Carolina—a semi-rural, working class neighborhood with a significant immigrant population. A donation in any amount to PODER Emma will grant you access to our Seconds page, where we sell practically perfect pots at 20% off the retail price, in stock and ready to ship.

• We cannot combine orders. If you'd like to add an item to an existing order, send an email to care@eastfork.com and we'll get things sorted.

• Our Asheville store is open for by-appointment shopping every day. We stock Seconds, an array of Pantry, Kitchen, Tabletop and Dining items and some special things you won't find online. Schedule your visit here.

    • Our Atlanta store is open by appointment Wednesday through Sunday and is now fully stocked with pots!
      • We were so encouraged by the wave of awareness, analysis, action, and accountability around racial injustice that swept the country last summer, and we implore our community and customers to keep it up!Keep on doing the personal work, keep having necessary conversations with friends and family, keep calling and writing our elected officials, keep learning, keep loving, and keep co-conspiring to find and initiate better, happier, healthier, solutions to replace the white supremacist, hetero/cis-normative, patriarchal, imperialist shit show we've all been living in for way too long. Time for something new! You can read a little about how equity work manifests at East Fork here.
