East Fork Pottery now open in Biltmore Village
The Mountain Xpress has an update on East Fork Pottery's new Biltmore Village factory:
East Fork, the pottery studio whose simple plates and bowls are used by several Asheville restaurants, has opened a new factory in Biltmore Village that could help it increase production by 800 percent by 2020.
Among local restaurants that use East Fork’s dinnerware are Curate, Cucina 24, Gan Shan Station, Table, The Montford Rooftop bar and Sovereign Remedies.
East Fork has moved into the defunct Kenny Pipe building at 531 Short McDowell St. The 14,500-square-foot space houses all of East Fork’s manufacturing and shipping operations, as well as support services and areas that will be used for community events. The revitalized space even includes a commercial kitchen in which employees sometimes cook the communal lunch the whole team shares every day around a 26-foot-long table. “Sharing a meal together around one table is something that felt very important to us when designing this new space,” brand manager Erin Hawley says.
