East Fork, one of our readers’ favorite pottery studios, is back at it again with a gorgeous new glaze that will put you right in a spring mood. Their most recent seasonal glazes have included the opulent Rococo that was perfect for the holidays as well as the moody Black Mountain for a bold backdrop to any meal. And, in addition to these limited releases, the brand even brought back one of their most popular glazes, Utah, which you can still get your hands on. 

Now, in honor of spring, they’re launching Fiddlehead, an earthy green that will instantly make your table look bright and welcoming. East Fork will be releasing Fiddlehead today, Apr. 7, at 11 a.m. ET, so get ready to set your alarm. Like the rest of the East Fork glazes, you can expect to see Fiddlehead across all of their pottery offerings, including cups and mugs, plates, bowls, sets, and of course, the fan-favorite The Mug.

As we’ve come to expect from the beloved Asheville-based pottery studio, there’s a ton of inspiration behind the creation of the Fiddlehead hue. They write on their website that it’s a reminder of the “tender ferns that break free of the winter ground,” ready for spring, filling you with “a fresh breath of ease.” The color also perfectly complements the natural speckling of the pottery’s iron-rich clay, which peeks out along the rim and on the base of certain pieces.

Because there’s the entire East Fork pottery collection to shop this new hue in, we’ve selected three of our favorite options that we think would make great additions to your collection, starting with The Mug. This drinking vessel has a following online (just search #themug on Instagram!) as well as a fan club among our editors, too. Kitchn Senior Commerce Editor, Danielle, said that she’ll never go back to another mug after trying it. 

“With a 12-ounce capacity, a thick handle designed to feel like an extension of your hand, and substantive, chip-proof construction, this is the only mug I want to use every day for my morning coffee or afternoon tea,” she said. Leave it to East Fork to put intention behind every inch of this piece!

There’s also the Everyday Bowl that will quickly become your go-to piece of dinnerware. It’s one of those bowls you can use for just about anything, from cereal and yogurt to salads, pasta, and soup. If you wanted to invest in just one East Fork item, the Everyday Bowl is a great option.

If you really want to embrace this new shade, investing in the Dinner Set is the way to go. It includes a dinner plate, a side plate, and the Ice Cream Bowl, and is perfect for accommodating dinner, lunch, and snacks.

With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day fast approaching, now is the time to invest in a few East Fork pieces in the newest Fiddlehead glaze as a thoughtful gift. It’s in stock through June, so make sure you buy it before it’s gone!
