Tater Knob Pottery & Farm

Since 1979, Tater Knob Pottery & Farm has been creating artistic and functional gifts near Berea, Kentucky. The Enge family— Sarah, Jeff, and their son, David, have been creating unique, handcrafted pottery for over 38 years. Though they specialize in twenty-five standard items, including place settings, pitchers, vases, lamps, bells, and their famed “spoonbread bakers,” which are designed to bake and serve spoonbread, each piece is completely unique. Their potters are all graduates of Berea College’s Ceramic Apprenticeship Program and draw their inspiration from the wooded acres of their farm on Wolf Gap Road.

Joyce Garner — Painter

Joyce Garner is a self-taught painter with roots in Laurel County, Kentucky. She lives and works in Louisville, Kentucky.

“Many of my paintings rely on an extended allegory of people coming together around a table. Helpful figures of speech: get everyone together around the table, turn the table, wait on tables, get a seat at the table, set the table, put something on the table (or take it off), table it for now, no room at the table, under the table. 
​I [paint] to tell the complications of family through time, and my wishes for the future. Emotional dialogues take place that are interactions not just within a family but with the history of the family, which includes society at large and our natural world…

My intent for my work comes from how I love to sit in front of a piece in the mornings with a cup of hot tea in my hands, and let my mind go. I want art that gives me a place to go.”

Sunhouse Craft — Designer/Makers

Home goods inspired by the timeless traditions of Appalachian crafts. Designed and made in the rolling hills of Berea Kentucky, wooden wares are hand made, often hewn with axe and knife. Brooms are hand woven, with a non-electric process, and time and attention is paid to the details of each piece. Wood is sustainably sourced and harvested from nearby, and locally farmed, and natural fibers inform the design process.
