First Look: East Fork pottery opens its first location outside of Asheville in Atlanta’s Westside Provisions
If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at recreating a Bacchanalia-style meal at home, you can be one step closer thanks to the opening of East Fork in Westside Provisions District. It’s the pottery brand’s first outside its hometown of Asheville, North Carolina.
Formerly a designer with Musso Design Group, Daniel Zimmerman (an Atlanta artist and interior designer) and another former Musso colleague, Seth van den Bergh, recently launched their own design firm, the Drawing Room.
Sketches of starbursts, stripes, and even cacti cover Brandy Schuman’s hand-cast ceramic plates, jewelry dishes, and spoons. Her colorful line, A Sensible Habit, began with quirky stationery and printed textiles, but Schuman recently expanded to tableware and jewelry.
It started with bud vases. But in just its second year, Courtney Hamill’s handmade ceramics line, Honeycomb Studio, has expanded into lighting. The Atlanta native works out of a backyard shed at her home on the Westside, sometimes sitting down at the wheel but more often making her porcelain vessels, holiday ornaments, turtledoves, antlers, and now three styles of lamp bases from original slip-cast molds.
