Weather Closing Notice

Hi Everyone,

We hope you're staying warm today! Due to poor weather conditions, We will not be making pottery or shipping out orders today. We hope to be back in the studio tomorrow or the following day, but in the mean time, orders might take an extra day or two to arrive at their destination. Thank you as always for your business!

The Sunset Canyon Pottery Team

Join us at our Winter Seconds Sale 12/16 and 12/17!

Come find your hidden gem at our Winter Seconds Sale!

Are you ready to get your holiday shopping done early!

Join us Saturday, December 16th & Sunday, December 17th from 10 am to 6 pm.

Every year, we generate a LOT of items that we can’t sell at full price because of glazing and firing issues which we will be selling at deeply discounted prices. These items are still functional, beautiful pottery pieces but a little too unique for our main line of work. Come by and find that special one of a kind item for your or a friend’s home collection!

Our studio is located at 5809 Burnet Road, Austin, TX 78756.

We are directly behind the Austin Pets Alive Thrift store. Parking is available on the front and side of our building with overflow parking available in the Walgreens parking lot.

Site Maintenance on 10/17/2017

Hi everyone. I just wanted to let everyone know that we'll be making some updates to our web site around 5 PM CST. They should only take a couple of minutes to complete, but there might be momentary performance issues with the site. Thank you as always for your continued business!

Newly Available Item: Appetizer Tray

New Item In Stock: Deep Chip & Dip

We are excited to announce the return of our Deep Chip & Dip to the Sunset Canyon Pottery online store! While our Chip & Dip will certainly suit most of your entertaining needs, you might find yourself wanting a little more. More means you won't have to waste valuable party time refilling your chip bowl so often. More means instead of a shrimp cocktail, you can serve a shrimp kegger! Entertain more with your handmade Deep Chip & Dip from Sunset Canyon Pottery!

Making Pottery, Rain or Shine.

Last week, we installed a canopy over our big gas kiln. Now we can fire pottery during a rain storm, and we won't burst into flames trying to load the kiln on sunny days! Check out the photos below to see the process and results!

Now we just need a few pieces of sheet metal to close up the gaps between the canopy and kiln roof, and our kiln will be fully weatherized!

Butter Trays are now available!

Group shot of butter trays in 6 different patterns.

Serve your butter in style with our butter trays! Not just for breakfast though, you can serve snacks or eat sushi with them. You can even use them as a place to put your keys, jewelry, or spare change! (Just make sure to clean the butter off before putting your favorite ring down on one.)
