East Fork Pottery Size Chart

If you don't live near one of our stores or recently discovered us, you may not have had a chance to get up close and personal with our pottery. Seeing, touching, feeling, and comparing is a sensual joy of shopping. For some, it's a crucial step in the purchase process, and it's pretty hard to do online, so we made a chart to help all of you who are stationed far away decide what sizes work for you.

This chart provides comparative images of all of our bowls and plates, their exact measurements, and examples of what to use them for. We hope this helps.

We make our plate with a slight upward lip for spill-proof serving and easy stacking.
