“‘Our generation is being sold a lot of lies and crap using the language of ‘handcrafted, authentic, and artisan,’” Connie says. “East Fork does our best to weed through the bullshit, and celebrates the people and things who are doing the right thing...even when the camera's not pointed on them.’ The work itself seems to be a proxy for such groundedness—pleasing pieces of the earth that, with a thunk on the table, keep you from feeling like you might float away.” Thank you @archdigest for not editing out my less-than-proper language.

March Clay Club will be at East Fork Pottery in Asheville from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, March 13th. Thanks to Alex Matisse and everyone at East Fork for hosting us!
We'll be meeting at the recently-opened East Fork factory in Biltmore Village. We will get to tour the new East Fork factory space and hear about the work they are doing there.
We'll have our usual potluck, so bring food to share. Clay Club is BYOB, so bring drink, too.
The East Fork factory is located at 531 Short McDowell Street in Asheville. Google maps will get you there: https://goo.gl/maps/ox4YYqFHh3R2. The map below (click to enlarge) has information about parking.
Carpooling: if you’re interested in carpooling, let me know and I will put folks in touch. You can also leave a comment here on this blog post or on this facebook post.
See you on March 13th!
