East Fork Hospitality
East Fork makes a full range of ceramic dinnerware that stands up to all-night trips to the dish bin and the chaos of commercial dishwashers. We’re thrilled to finally offer our durable, functional, and beautiful pottery to select hospitality partners at up to 50% off. For any questions, get in touch at [email protected]
“East Fork is a Southern story, a family story and I love that. They make remarkable pottery.“
-Anne Quatrano, Bacchanalia
They Eat With the Eyes First
Our iron-rich clay grounds our broad color palette to the earth, making for a canvas that accentuates, rather than distracts from, what’s on the plate. The raw clay rims get buttery soft with use and helps the food on the plate pop. Designed by a team of potters and F&B lifers, the work translates seamlessly into a broad range of aesthetics—minimal and maximal, kitschy and classic, cottage-core and contemporary.
Matching Form to Function
From tsukemen to pasta all’amatriciana, tartare to a perfect wedge salad, the daintiest amuse-bouche to a family-style cowboy ribeye, we have 13 bowl and plate forms in a broad range of sizes and shapes—something just right for every dish on your menu.
We’ve considered functionality of our work from every angle—from how well they hold up in commercial dishwashers, how they look stacked up tall in the pass, how easy they are to pick up from the table, and how light reflects off the semi-matte surface.
We say in the business, "If you can tell the difference between a cost and an investment, then you have the opportunity to be successful." When the guest has the opportunity or a probability of touching something, of being so close to something, then it has to be an investment. The glassware, the tabletops, the pottery–it makes a difference.
-Cindy and Alan LeBlanc, Bold Monk Brewing
Made with Integrity
Now more than ever—thank goodness!—customers are coming to hold businesses accountable for making thoughtful choices from where they source to how they treat their staff. East Fork is a B-Corporation and Climate Neutral Certified, with a $22/hour starting wage for our manufacturing team. All of our work is made with regional materials in Asheville, North Carolina, and we use our values—Accountablity, Compassion, Sincerity, Equity, and Tenacity—actively in all levels of decision making. 100% lead-free, too.
