inspired by sea life

May 26, 2012

Ceramic artist Heather Knight works in Asheville, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. But she draws inspiration for much of her elegant and understated bowls and wall tiles (below) from sea life.

Working exclusively with porcelain, Knight creates modern pieces that mimic scallops, urchins and anemones.

A white color palette enables her to focus on texture and form. Prices range from $30 to $450 and up.

The set of three nesting scallop bowls (pictured) is $172. Hand-built from porcelain clay, the eye-catching yet durable bowls have an unglazed, textured exterior. The interior is treated with a translucent copper-blue glaze. The bowls are safe for food, your dishwasher and microwave.

With their spiky exterior, the sea urchin-inspired bowls ($58 and up, pictured below) make a statement (especially in a group) on a table.

Visit or Knight’s studio and showroom, Element Ceramics & Design, in the trendy River Arts District in Asheville.

In Atlanta, find her work at MudFire Gallery ( in Decatur.
