East Fork Pottery to host exclusive Seconds pop-up event in Richmond

East Fork Pottery, an Asheville, North Carolina-based pottery company co-founded by the great-grandson of artist Henri Matisse, is bringing a pop-up shop to Richmond this weekend.

Why it matters: East Fork has garnered a cult-like following — in part for its rustic stoneware mugs, plates, and other wares — and in part for its candid social media posts and commitment to paying its workers a living wage.

What's happening: East Fork Seconds is popping up Saturday at Richmond's Na Nin warehouse at 3600 Douglasdale Road from 10am-3pm.

  • East Fork chose Richmond because of its big customer base here, the platemakers tell Axios.

What you'll find: Artisanal plates, bowls and other pottery that's "perfectly imperfect"(but still functional) for 30% off retail prices. Plus, East Fork will have some "seasonal surprises."

The bottom line: It's the pottery event of the year (probably) and if you're into that, you won't want to miss it. (But if you do, they're headed up to D.C. next weekend.)
