Our Glazes

Our pottery comes in four core glazes that we plan to make and sell indefinitely: Eggshell, Panna Cotta, Morel and Amaro.

If any forms in these glazes are out of stock, or you'd like to purchase more than what is currently available, please contact Jeffery Ray at industry@eastfork.com. Core glazes are typically restocked within 2-4 weeks and can be reserved ahead of time.

Seasonal glazes are released a few times a year and in production for a few months before their retirement. Our current seasonal is Fiddlehead.

What Makes a Mug a 'Second'?

  • Visible attachment where the handle and vessel meet
  • Minor dings, scratches, scuffs on raw clay surface
  • Skewed handles
  • Flaws in the exterior curve or point of attachment
  • Abnormally larger iron flecks (we call these "beauty marks")
  • Pin-holing, which looks like tiny air bubbles on the glaze's surface
