Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Can I put Burning Fork Studio pottery in the dishwasher and microwave?

A: I recommend hand washing my items to make sure that the lace patterns don’t get stained or discolored in the dishwasher. However, I’m too lazy to really practice what I preach, and I put my mugs and tumblers in the dishwasher pretty regularly, which hasn’t hurt them yet! It won't damage the pottery to put it in the microwave, but it does heat up quite a bit—I use potholders to get my mugs out of the microwave and wait a moment for the handle to cool before drinking.

Q: Do you make custom items?

A: I currently do not offer custom items, because I am in the midst of a studio move. I hope to offer custom items again soon.

Q: Do you offer international shipping?

A: Right now, Burning Fork items only ship within the United States. My goal is to keep my business as "local" as possible while still offering options for customers outside of Tennessee via my Etsy shop.

Q: Do you offer wholesale or sell through other websites?

A: I currently only sell my own work through my Etsy shop or sometimes by local consignment. I may offer wholesale in the future. If you are a retailer and want to know when I begin offering items for wholesale, please sign up for my newsletter at www.burningforkstudio.com.

Q: Will you sign up for my craft fair?

A: I have participated in many art festivals and craft fairs in the past, but at this time I am only selling online or sometimes by local consignment. If you would like to send me information about your fair to keep in mind for the future, please send an email to lahla [!at] burningforkstudio.com with the following information:
-Typical dates and times of your event each year
-How many years the event has taken place
-How many people typically attend the event
-What types of other vendors participate
-Include photos and other important registration information

I love everything! These are one of a kind beautiful pieces. I've got so many compliments on the earrings & the ornaments match perfectly with my tree. The ornament I took to an ornament exchange party was a huge hit. Thank you!

About

Burning Fork Studio

I'm Lahla Deakins, artist and owner of Burning Fork Studio LLC in Knoxville, TN. I have always loved making all kinds of art, but when I discovered pottery in college, I knew I had found a medium that I would never be able put down. Since then, I've taken classes, made pots at the kitchen table in my apartment, taken more classes, and now finally, I've started my own business and studio.

I'm drawn to pottery because it's so relatable. We all drink from cups, we eat from plates, we pour liquids from pitchers and stir concoctions in bowls. In fact, people have been using pottery for these purposes, among others, for thousands of years. I'm drawn to the connections between present and past, between maker and consumer, represented by using handmade pottery to carry out our daily routines. I believe that drinking coffee from a cup made by hand, with love and care, can make an otherwise mundane morning feel special. Who doesn't want to start the day like that?
