Rising Sun Pottery, a full service pottery studio, is open to the public and is located two blocks from Courthouse Square in historic downtown Lincolnton, North Carolina. Steeped in 200 years of North Carolina's Catawba Valley pottery tradition, our students and studio potters use wheel thrown and hand built techniques to create beautiful utilitarian and folk inspired pottery, many of which are available in our retail gallery.
Conveniently located on Highway 321 halfway between Hickory (I-40) and Gastonia, NC (I-85), we offer everything from
adult instructional classes in wheel-turning and
studio rental space for the emerging or
experienced potter with no room at home to
retail/wholesale sales of clay, dry materials,
tools, equipment, kilns and equipment repair
Workshops are also offered at Rising Sun
throughout the year for raku firings, hand

Annual Mug Sale
For those of you who are not aware we have temporary postponed our annual Mug for Mutts and Cups for Cats Benefit indefinitely. However, we will be continuing our support of the Humane Society of Lincoln County by making a yearly donation equal to what we raised in 2018 at our 21st event. Hopefully we will be able to restart this event in the coming years. Thank you for your support over the years. The Cats and Dogs very much appreciated your support.
We welcome Landon Cornett to Rising Sun Pottery as our new Studio Manager. See her details in the Studio Potters Page.
