Artist Statement


Michael Knott Designs:

Michael is a master metalsmith and extraordinary artist, recognized and respected as an experienced designer and fabricator. His work features distinctive textures that accent or showcase brilliant and unusual stones. Michael takes delight in custom work - making sure the work is exactly what the customer wants – from initial sketch to finished piece.

Apparent in his work is his love of texture and organic shapes, as well as unusual stones and high karat golds and silver. Unique combinations are hallmarks of his designs. Influences of Asian art and Native American jewelry lend a subtle quality to many of his handmade pieces.

With the heart of a craftsman, the soul of an artist, the skills of a true metalsmith and the eye of an experienced designer, Michael makes pieces that become treasures.
