East Fork Releases a New, Lapis Hue in Tandem With an Auction for LGBTQ+ Equality

Available for preorder on July 2, this bold new color is all mood, all the time.

Mark your calendars: Asheville, North Carolina–based pottery and lifestyle company East Fork is set to release a bold new colorway for summer this Thursday, July 2 at noon EDT. A little bit edgy, a little bit classical, we can't wait to add these ceramics to our cabinets—Blue Nudes, anyone?

Traditionally, each year East Fork celebrates the Supreme Court ruling in favor of same sex marriages by releasing a special line of mugs. This year, they're doing something a little different: from June 26 to July 10, East Fork is hosting a live auction of blue-hued objects from talented ceramicists, printmakers, glass artists, and chefs they admire—including a sculptural urinal by Tyler Hays, who we covered last year. 100% of the proceeds are going to the Campaign for Southern Equality to support their work toward legal and lived equality for LGBTQ+ Southerners. In addition, East Fork will be donating a portion of proceeds from the Lapis presale to Campaign for Southern Equality. See a few of our favorite piece from the launch below:

East Fork Dinner Plate
We made and ate off hundreds of prototypes for The Dinner Plate before landing on this form. It has a slight lip for neat stacking and fits just right into standard dishwasher racks.
The Palestinian Table
"With The Palestinian Table, Reem Kassis gracefully demonstrates the power of food to transcend the political divisions that are, too often, all we know of a place like Palestine.
