East Fork, one of our readers’ favorite pottery studios, is back at it again with a gorgeous new glaze that will make you feel like you’ve escaped to a luxurious Mediterranean vacation. Their most recent seasonal glazes have included the refreshing Fiddlehead for spring and the opulent Rococo for a bold tablescape, in addition to their already stunning year-round earthy glazes that include Eggshell, Panna Cotta, Morel, and Amaro. Now, the new Secret Beach glaze is the ultimate shade for any of us in need of a summer getaway.

Launching today July 7, East Fork’s Secret Beach is a gentle, inviting turquoise inspired by the Mediterranean. Whether you’re planning a beach vacation or are just dreaming of one, this new glaze is guaranteed to put you in a relaxed state of mind. So many of East Fork’s essential pieces are available in Secret Beach, including popular dinnerware, serveware, and more. Like the rest of East Fork’s limited-time seasonal glazes, this will only be available through September. So you’ll want to make sure you fill up your cart before the glaze is gone!

While we love every glaze East Fork puts out, there’s something extra-special about this new summery hue. On its website, East Fork describes the shade as one that “invites us to dip our head below the waves, plunge our toes into soft sands and refresh ourselves in the pursuit of pleasure.” Just reading that sentence is enough to whisk us away to a dreamy destination. As for the recommended pairings? “Afternoon naps, olives with fennel and orange zest, sunglasses and sunsets.” Even in the middle of winter, we can see any piece in this glaze putting you in a summer mood.

As for the pieces you can get this shade in, the options are wide. The most popular one, however, is likely The Mug, an East Fork original that we love. It’s a 16-ounce mug with its own fan following (just check out #themug on Instagram!) that we agree lives up to the hype after reviewing it for ourselves. It has a thick handle designed to feel like an extension of your hand and a chip-proof construction for a mug that you’ll want to use every single day. You can also purchase the Juice Cup or Toddler Cup in the Secret Beach glaze for additional drinking options.

We also suggest that you check out the Everyday Bowl, another East Fork favorite that we always highlight. 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. There’s also the gorgeous 9-cup capacity Serving Bowl if you like to entertain or the very-cute Ice Cream Bowl for snacks.

Of course, another great way to spruce up your pottery collection is to get yourself a plate or two in the new glaze. The aptly-named Dinner Plate is large enough for entrees, whether for a casual weeknight or special occasion meal. East Fork designers went through hundreds of prototypes before landing on this plate with its slight lip and dishwasher-safe size. We guarantee it’ll make any dinner feel special! Pair it with the Salad Plate for a complete set.

With East Fork, there’s a never-ending supply of goodies to shop. If you want to feel like you’re basking on the shores of the Mediterranean this summer, we suggest taking advantage of this beautiful glaze before it’s gone!
