In January we had the opportunity to sit down with Heather Knight and ask her some questions about her life as a ceramic artist.
SAVCC: What got you interested in clay to begin with?
Heather: I saw a potter’s wheel when I was 5 and it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. It wasn't until I moved back to Arizona as a teenager that I was able to learn how to use one. It was true love right from the beginning.
SAVCC: How long have you been working in clay?
Heather: I started in high school 25 years ago, and got serious my senior year, making tableware and organizing my own independent study courses. Unfortunately, when I went on to attend College of Charleston, there wasn't a ceramics department, so I was forced to do other things until I enrolled at UNC - Asheville in the early 2000's.
