Lookout Mountain Pottery - The home of Lookout Mountain Pottery has been a local reference point for Southern Appalachian Arts and Crafts since 1947, when Fannie Mennen, a local printmaker, founded the Plum Nelly Clothesline Art Show. The name Plum Nelly is derived from contractions of the phrases: "Plum out of Tennessee" and "Nearly out of Georgia." Featuring local artists and craftspeople, the show is but an historical footnote now. Today, potter Mark Issenberg has returned to contribute to that former inspiration. 3005 Plum Nelly Road, Rising Fawn, GA. 706-398-3232
