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

16th Annual Empty Bowl Benefit
Thanks to everyone who attended the 16th Annual Empty Bowl Benefit this past September 30, 2013. It was a great success as we sold 326 bowls to benefit Hospice Palliative Care Lincoln County. Our many thanks go to all our student and Hospice volunteers as well as to Texas Roadhouse Steak House in Hickory, NC for their donation of coupons and famous yeast rolls. They were a big hit this year. We have donated 60% of the gross receipts to Hospice Palliative Care for this year's benefit. Check back in early 2014 on our Events page for the 2014 date and time.
