Element Clay Studio

Business Description
Heather Knight is an internationally renowned ceramic artist who has garnered attention from the worldwide art and design community since she opened Element in 2007. She works almost exclusively with porcelain and her work is widely recognized for its striking combination of modern esthetic with textures, patterns and shapes inspired by nature.

Knight received her BFA from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 2006. After serving as a resident artist and instructor at Odyssey Center for the Ceramic Arts in Asheville, she held a teaching position at the Greenville County Museum of Art in South Carolina. Knight opened the doors to her studio, Element, in 2007 in Asheville, North Carolina, and has focused on her art full-time ever since, elevating her body of work into an internationally sought after brand. Her art has been exhibited nationwide, as well as in France, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Dubai.

Knight and her art have been featured on The Nate Berkus Show, as well as in many publications including Interior Design Magazine, House Beautiful, Coastal Living, Portland Spaces, Charleston Home, American Craft and Bon Appetit.

In spite of the rapid growth of her business, Knight has stayed true to the handmade nature of her art and considers it an integral part of her process. She uses zero means of mass production, creating each piece from conception completely by hand.

An active member of its vibrant and eclectic artist community, Knight has called Asheville, North Carolina, home for nearly 15 years. Her Husband Mike joined the studio business in September 2012, and their son, Caleb is now also a regular fixture. Her studio and showroom, Element Ceramics, is located on Depot St. in Asheville's River Arts District.
