Linda Hsiao is one half of Knotwork LA, an online shop filled with pieces that Linda has made herself, and some in collaboration with Kagan Taylor. “Knotwork LA was created as an outlet to identify the work we do in our spare time, it began as evenings and weekends spent in the shop and studio, precious pieces of wood saved from other projects or found while hiking, ideas that came to us in the middle of the night, and a desire to create beautiful, useful things”, the duo states on their website.
The standout for me are the beautiful ceramic pieces Linda creates, specifically the Porcelain Inlay Series. The artist explains that this series is inspired by her local California beach shorelines and the different clay bodies pressed together are reminiscent of eroded sedimentary rocks. The earthy, textured feel of these pieces, along with their beautiful colour combinations, makes me swoon. If you’re interested in Linda’s process, her Instagram account is full of behind the scenes shots.
