EF Workshop

The East Fork Workshop, formerly known as the Small Batch Studio, was founded in the spring of 2019 to provide a perfect platform to play, experiment, get weird, hone in on what works and what doesn't, and troubleshoot new forms that might one day end up in our line.

We are potters at our core

East Fork’s roots go back to an old tobacco farm turned pottery workshop tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains. In 2018, we moved our operations out of that barn and into a factory in Asheville, North Carolina, where we are growing a radically transparent manufacturing company that provides solid, sustainable middle-class jobs in our community.

Today we are one of the most technologically advanced producers of dinnerware in the United States. We embrace technology and automation in the making of our dinnerware. But, we are potters.

We’re reintroducing hand thrown pots through our East Fork Workshop. Our limited releases will be thrown by our very own, Mike Ball, who’s been with us since East Fork the early years.

“It’s fun to set my own pace here…and I like being able to create something from beginning to end,” Mike said with a bit of twinkle in his eye. “We’ve got exciting things planned for the Workshop.”

Wheel-thrown pottery made in house by East Fork potters. We can’t wait to share what we have in store.
