Tater Knob Pottery and Farm

Reviewed By gemmac234

We found this quaint little place and thoroughly enjoyed talking with the owners/potters and looking around the gallery. They gave us a very interesting demonstration of what they do. We found several things we had to bring home and will probably either go back or order some pieces from them again. Gorgeous pottery!

Weston Glass Studio

Visitors are welcome to explore our gallery and watch our glass blowers pull 2000 degree glass from the furnace and coax it into unique creations.

Friendly staff and artisan. Amazing glass blown handiwork. Absolutely beautiful. Sadly no glass blowing was being done the day we visited, but we enjoyed looking around, talking to the glass blower and shop keeper and seeing the glass blowing workshop. The glasswork is amazing. So many beautiful items. I found a beautiful unique gift for a friend.

Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea

Reviewed By LovesToTravel31 - Rocky River, United States

This is by far the best “rest area” ever. About 1/2 mile off I-75 south of Lexington. It’s exceptionally clean, with a staffed information desk, nice bathrooms, and a great selection of local arts and craft items for sale. There’s also a cafe that offers very reasonably priced hot meals, as well as snacks and drinks, with both indoor and outdoor seating. We’ll definitely stop here again the next time we’re driving through.

Students and artisans working on their craft. Many different kinds of crafts beautifully handmade. You have to not only see them but understand all the painstaking intricacies involved in making them.
