“Amazing Place”

Tater Knob Pottery and Farm
Ranked #2 of 23 Shopping in Berea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Sarah is an amazingly talented and hospitable women. When my colleagues and I visited her studio we were welcomed with warm smiles. We were given wonderful refreshments and were seated to watch Sarah make her pottery designs. Our visit was very interactive as we were able to ask questions and touch some of her work. She was very willing to answer questions and you could tell that she has a deep passion for her art. My experience was a one of a kind experience and Sarah even ended the experience with a hug that left her clay hand prints on the back of my colleagues and I shirts.

The pottery business of Sarah Culbreth is truly exceptional. Immediately upon stepping out from the car and into the gravel driveway leading up to her shop, my friends and I were greeted by a puppy who was clearly excited to have visitors, given his wagging tail and ample supply of dog kisses. Once inside the shop, Sarah was the first person to greet us, and she quickly escorted us through a hallway to her ceramics studio where she sat us down, brewed us a fresh batch of Fair-Trade Organic Coffee served in her own handmade mugs, and began creating a beautiful masterpiece on her turning wheel. She engaged with us, answering our questions about her history as a potter and educating us on her art form. We spent nearly an hour in Sarah's shop before leaving, and I feel we could have stayed much longer if our schedules would have allowed. The hospitality that Ms. Culbreth extended to us was unmatched in any other business I have visited in Berea, and I already have plans to revisit Tater Knob Pottery in the near future with family. I would encourage you to do the same!

Sarah Culbreth brought us into her studio and showed us true hospitality. We were given refreshments and sat down to watch her work with the clay. She was able to interact with us and answer all of her questions while still working magic with the earth! All of her creations are amazing and it was completely worth the trip!

I visited with my friend in search of another artisan. We did not find him there, but we did not leave either because of the high quality of art that was available and mostly because of the amazing hospitality of Sarah Culberth, the artist.
She welcomed us into her pottery, told us to make ourselves comfortable then and offered us punch and some tasty fresh organic French roasted coffee. She then went on to engage us in the history of her trade while showing us how she does pottery; yes, she threw for us to experience even though she had not planned to throw any that day.
The product of that throwing was a beautiful vase that I felt attached to because I watched it coming to life through the artistry of Sarah. It was an immense educational and inspirational experience.
Her crafts are absolutely gorgeous.

My husband and I took the drive to Tater Knob to purchase some pottery. What started out as a shopping trip ended up being a wonderful afternoon spent with Sarah Culbreth in a beautiful, serene setting. Sarah loves sharing the art of pottery with her customers and, because she went to Berea College and stayed in the area, she is very knowledgeable about the areas around Berea. She can recommend where to stop and where to eat along the way.

We didn't plan to spend hours at Tater Knob but so glad we did. The pottery is absolutely beautiful and one-of-a-kind and we proudly display the pieces we purchased.
