During its first few years in this former mill property, Pottery 51 operated out of a 1,400 square foot space, as it grew in its mission and participation. In 2013 with the group thriving, it moved into its current 3,400 square foot space, where it continued to add new members and create its gallery/showroom along with studio spaces of varying sizes for its member artists.

While the public has had some access to the gallery up to now, this announcement provides Mint Hill residents the opportunity to watch artists in action and view and purchase some of the area’s finest pottery and clay works all summer long and into the fall.

The Lofts at 7714 is a former mill property that has been retrofitted into ten commercial lofts. Pottery 51 occupies the second largest of these spaces. There are currently two spaces available for lease in The Lofts at 7714.
