Mugs tend to pile up in your cupboard. You get one from a gift shop at a National Park, another at a holiday gift exchange, another at a craft fair. Like your stuffed animals when you were a kid, you try to give each one some attention because you feel bad. Until this one came along. This is the coffee mug that you'll want to use every single day. Trust us. Live with others? Get a few. They'll want to use it, too.


  • The Mug is the gift you give yourself. And others! It really does make an excellent present.
  • Fits an Aeropress
  • Dishwasher and microwave safe
  • 100% lead free and made from regional materials
  • Our pottery is made by humans in Asheville, North Carolina. Any differences in glaze applications and surfaces are there to embrace.

From sips to gulps, we've got the cup.

#TheMug In The Wild

One day, you’re a person who grabs the first coffee mug in the cabinet and the next, you’ve got an East Fork Mug now you’re forever fishing it out of the dishwasher. It’s simple, beautiful and then there’s how it feels in your hand, that little bit of heft.

How The Mug Gets Made

We love a good story and here's the tale of The Mug in the form of a video created by our own Donnie Rex, a videographer, photographer and member of the Mug team. The video shows a step-by-step of how our Mug goes from a chunk of raw clay to a vessel we hope you’ll use and love for decades. The process itself is mesmerizing, but our hands-down favorite part is seeing the dozen or so people who have a hand (literally) in making these Mugs.

Emilja Says...

"Making mugs is so fulfilling because they're such special objects to people. Whether part of a beloved morning routine or quiet nighttime ritual, everyone has a favorite mug, and getting to be a part of creating those—knowing they're going into the hands of people who will adore them—gives my daily work meaning." – Emilja Tokarski, Mug Operations Lead
