The Winner

About this design:

Let East Fork’s cherished seasonal colors, Night Swim and Molasses, inspire your design this week. 


Night Swim and Molasses represent the earthy wilderness and fleeting nostalgia of seasonal change. As the air turns crisp and leaves begin to blanket the ground, we’re basking in our homes, creating spaces of sanctuary and connection. As you create, imagine your design adorning table linens paired with East Fork pottery. 

An Important Note About Your Entry 

Artists must: 
Use both East Fork glaze colors, Night Swim (#005E5D) and Molasses (#4C312D). 

Artists can: 
Incorporate neutrals, but we recommend keeping it simple with no more than 4 colors total. Selecting neutrals from East Fork’s core colors will ensure your design compliments the pottery: Eggshell (#DDE4E6), Panna Cotta (#EDE6D6), Morel (#948272) and Black Mountain (#212121). Honoring Night Swim and Molasses is key!
