East Fork Collection is simple and fundamental. Unadorned, the work is distilled to its essential elements: form and function. It is durable and timeless, resistant to fashion and trends. The pots do not designate a specific maker but are stamped, simply, EAST FORK. They are made by all the members of our workshop.

Buchi is a community centered, women founded and 15% worker-owned business continuing the ancient folk tradition of brewing kombucha, a living, probiotic rich, all-natural beverage. We started brewing kombucha so our families would have a healthy alternative to high fructose corn syrup beverages and caffeine laden energy drinks.
Our story begins in the heart of the world’s oldest mountain chain, where we found each other in the most serendipitous way. After years of home brewing kombucha individually, we met through our children’s home school co-op and we soon discovered we each separately brewed an almost identical tasting kombucha. We teamed up and after a year of experimentation and research, with kids at play and baby on back…Buchi was born!

INTENTION: Reaching Through the Bubble
What if you seized the opportunity to look at your life as a blank canvas and reevaluate the person you want to be and the life you want to live? Evolution of self can come through seismic shifts in one’s personal landscape, or it can come through small acts of intention taken over time.
Nicole McConville offers up reflections on her journey of reaching past the head and through the heart to find both connection and an understanding of self.
