The Element of Heather Knight

So here we go again... back to the mountains of North Carolina. I have found souch amazing artists and artisans there and I'd like to introduce you to one more... Heather Knight.

Heather Knight is an internationally recognized artist that has garnered attention form the world-wide design community since joining Etsy in 2007. She exhibits nationally and works closely with design community professionals to produce small scale installations.

She studied Ceramics and received a BFA (bachelor of fine arts)
from UNC-Asheville in 2006. She also served as a resident artist at
Odyssey Center for the Ceramics Arts the following year.
While acting as Ceramics faculty for the Greenville County Museum of Art, Heather started her studio in 2007.
Her aim is to create work that reflects
both her love of modern design and her admiration for the natural world.

Heather is passionately committed to the hand made aspect
of her work and strives to deliver pieces that display
both impeccable craftsmanship and an eye for detail.

She believes in keeping true to the hand made process of her art
and does not use any means of mass production.
She is fortunate enough to have an assistant
to help with administrative tasks and running of her life,
thus allowing her to spend as many hours as possible making her work.

If you're ever in Asheville, North Carolina
please check her out at the local galleries or shop now on Esty at
