Heather Knight opened Element Clay Studio in Asheville, NC in the summer of 2007 as a way to supplement her income in between teaching sessions at the local museum. Interior Design magazine contacted her late that year, and by May 2008, she resigned from her teaching position to pursue Element Clay Studio full time. Her shop now occupies a large storefront studio in the Asheville River Arts District; an eclectic neighborhood that houses almost 200 artists and craftsmen, and produces work for stores, galleries, designers and consultants all over the world.
Though the business has grown greatly in the last eight years, the backbone of the studio has remained the same. Heather is committed to remaining a craft based business, and all of the porcelain dishes, tiles, vases and decorative objects are 100% handmade and don't use any means of mass production. Adhering to these values allows Element Clay Studio to continue to produce only the finest, heirloom quality work.
As a small, family run company, we pride ourselves in providing you with not only handmade, gallery quality work, but excellent customer service that exceeds your expectations. We hope to bring a little luxury to your life, and provide you with things you will love and cherish for a lifetime.
