Element Clay Studio


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Through a chance meeting at a casual dinner a week or so ago, I had the privilege of meeting Heather Knight, a very talented ceramicist who just moved to Atlanta from Asheville. Heather is still getting settled in her new digs (in fact, the kiln isn’t even firing up yet), a live/work space in Decatur that serves as home for her Element Clay Studio.

Heather was nice enough to let me take a peek around and snap some shots when I came to pick up a few pieces I’d purchased from her etsy store.

It was fun to see where she created all of her intricate work, and after seeing it, I appreciated her inspiration board that much more:

This is her assistant and head of security, Henry:

I love the way Heather styles her work, especially these tiles. This is the image she uses on her logo:

By the way, my cruddy cellphone pictures are not doing the work justice. I highly recommend looking at it more closely on Heather’s site or on etsy.

Pardon my exterior afterthought shot with the open car door. I was in a hurry to get to Chik-Fil-A. It’s impossible to go to Decatur without a stop there, well, except when you go on a Sunday, since they are closed, which is always horrendously disappointing when you make a Chikkie run and forget.

I’m trying out the insert gallery button here just to sneak in the extra shots. Yes, I am about three years behind the curve with this. Or is it more like ten? Anyway, yea or nay to the “Insert Gallery” doohickey? Let me know in the comments.
