This is a quick interview with Rebecca Knott to learn some
tidbits about her in a short amount of time. Rebecca
has been around blacksmithing her whole life, she held her first
hammer at the ripe age of three. She studied fine art at
Southhampton Solent University, then worked with a master
blacksmith for 7 months before returning home to work in her
father’s (Terrence Clark) shop. Working on several large
projects with her father gave her the experience and knowledge to
start a blacksmithing business of her own in 2007. Her gates,
sconces and other custom pieces show an exceptional quality of
workmanship and attention to detail.
If you like what you hear and want to hear more from
Rebecca, you can listen to our in depth interview, that will soon
be available on the BlacksmitHER.com podcast page.
What Juicy tidbits are they?
- One of her most unusual jobs was making a larger than life
sized hammer, with the head being 2 ft x 1.5 ft, the handle was 4
- She recently used a technique called heat shrinking for a
connection on a candle opera.
- Rebecca has access to all of her father’s tools and she says he
has a tool for everything.
