    I’m so happy I was able to adopt this sweet chicken! She’s everything that I wanted and more. She’s sturdy, but lightweight and brings joy to my day when I see her.

    June has outdone herself with quality and creativity. I was very touched with a thank you note from June as well. I should be thanking her! I look forward to purchasing more products from RSE if I can get my hands on them!

    Seriously love this shop. They have the BEST mugs. I have 2 cat booties and now a prized chicken mug. I normally am very cautious with buying breakables online, but the way these are packages with such care, I don’t worry at all. ALSO, my eco loving self doesn’t cringe at the amount of waste because most is recyclable.
    15/20 eggcellent work.

About RisingSunEarthworks

Sales 1,083
On Etsy since 2007

I have a hard time calling it "art."

I don't want my pieces to be put on a pedestal and admired. I want them to become part of a life; to be held, used and loved every day.

After receiving my BA in studio art, I never wanted to make anything ever again. So I became an Animal Control Officer.

Fast forward to us living in Las Cruces, NM with 18 month old twins, when my husband surprised me with a used wheel and kiln. After expressing my horror that he would think I even had time for that, I found myself sneaking out to the garage during naptimes to dabble in the mud once again.

In 1997 I sold my first mug for $5 to a neighbor who stopped to chat and admired what I was pulling out of my kiln.

In 1999 we moved to Rhode Island where the pottery was put on hold until 2003 when I started up Rising Sun Earthworks, named in honor of my Japanese mom who always encouraged my artistic endeavors.

I've been muddy ever since.

    I was born to a Japanese mom and an American dad, and grew up in Los Alamos, NM. I spent my youth exploring the canyons, collecting shards of ancient pottery. I guess my fascination with mud and earth, and what can be created from it, started then.

    Russell has been a member of the RSE team since 2009. His special talent is finding the perfect napping spot, which also usually happens to be in front of the sink or the wedging table. His hobbies are farting and snoring.

    Ruby came to us in 2017. She charms everyone she meets. Ruby specializes in rolling her toys under furniture in the studio, and then whining and barking until I get on my hands and knees and retrieve it. She has me well trained.
