Heather Knight got started by making things she would want in her own home. Her business, Element Clay Studio, started as a way to supplement her income. Today, her line of nature-inspired ceramics is her full-time job, something she says was due, in part, to her decision to sell on Etsy.
"I received such great press and visibility that I was able to make it my full-time job within a year," she says. Her creations all come out of a converted shipping container on her property in Savannah, GA. She is helped out by her husband Mike, who takes care of customer service, keeping her websites updated, and generally helping out around the studio.
We talked with Knight about the story behind her shop's name, how she stays inspired, and where she shops when she's on Etsy. Take a closer look below:
