Due to declining sales, and with the additional galleries opening on Main Street here in Lincolnton, Rising Sun Pottery has decided to close our store front gallery effective January 1, 2018. We are in the process of converting this space by expanding our retail potters’ supply store. This will enable Rising Sun to carry an even larger selection of tools, glazes and other items for potters. We will continue to carry a few select fired items, such as soup bowls, mugs, soap dishes, serving trays, etc.
The studio potters at Rising Sun Pottery invite you to stop by the Gallery and see the variety of beautiful and original pieces created in our studio.
The Gallery is a place where you can browse the collection of
stoneware creations and talk directly with the potters whose work is on
display. Here you can see and purchase stoneware and folk art whose
style harkens back to the early days of pottery making in the Catawba
Valley region of North Carolina. You will find wheel-turned pots, hand-
built pieces and folk art creations including roosters, face jugs and face
All work and glazes are:
• food safe
• microwave safe
• dishwasher safe
• lead free
Only our raku fired work is unsafe for food or water usage. The work of the Rising Sun
Pottery studio is as functional as it is beautiful. Our utilitarian pieces are designed to
be used in the kitchen and home, and with loving care will last for generations to come.
The Gallery adjoins the working studio so you're
likely to find someone busy turning pots which will
provide an added appreciation for how the piece
was made and allow you to talk to the artist who
made it. This adds an extra dimension of
uniqueness to the pieces that you'll enjoy and
