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.

adult instructional classes in wheel-turning and

retail/wholesale sales of clay, dry materials,

Workshops are also offered at Rising Sun
