Heather Knight

Heather Knight’s porcelain creations reflect both her love of modern design and her admiration for the natural world. She is passionately committed to the hand made aspect of her work, and delivers pieces that display impeccable craftsmanship and an eye for detail. Her distinctive pieces frequently echo sea creatures, coral, and shells. The smooth unglazed porcelain exterior of her work marks a sharp visual and textural contrast between the glossy, frequently candy-colored interiors.

Her work has been featured in such fine publications as Interior Design Magazine, Western Interiors, Charleston Home, House Beautiful, Coastal Living, Cabin Life, Bold Life and Portland Spaces.

 

Heather Knight Artist Statement

"With my work I hope to bridge modern design and the natural world by paring down the essence of things to repetitive texture and basic form. I love the way a texture can produce the illusion of movement, the way light and shadow play with one another. I like to keep the work simple, as I strive to make it captivating yet universally understood. Understated and elegant, it should be able to fit in many different contexts.

I work mostly with porcelain, as touch also plays a major role in my work. The feel of the clay is something I will never be able to get away from. The texture is buttery smooth, the color a brilliant white and the working properties challenging.

Focusing on a very limited, almost all white color palette enables me to focus more on texture and surface and calls attention to the brilliance of the clay. I am constantly searching for new hints of inspiration on walks through the woods, beach adventures and through macro photography. The natural world holds a wealth of imagery from which I filter into this work."
