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 ft long.
- 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.
