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
