Knotwork LA by Linda Hsiao
Feelings of celebration
You immediately know when you come across a strong, distinct voice. The work springs to life, there's not much need for an explanation, and the impression sits with you long after you leave the room.
That's exactly what happens with Knotwork LA.
It's no wonder that her work is being picked up by some of the most distinguished establishments. There's something profound about Knotwork LA, and it's unmistakably Linda's.
Linda's Nerikomi-Inspired Style
Linda's pieces are typically made from mixed pieces of varying clay-bodies, inspired by a process called Nerikomi, where a piece's designs and patterns are built-in. There's no need for additional glaze or paint to create personality.
And not only is her approach unique, the pieces in this collection also have small etchings to accentuate the details and textures of her patterns. Whether it's the arms of a feather or the ripples of a cloud, Linda brings her pieces to life with tactile depth.
Depth of Character
With pieces that seem simple on the surface, Knotwork LA's tiki mugs and fish incense holders have history. Linda bestows origin and character to these pieces without frill, and what starts as a simple slab of clay is given new life.
Linda continues to explore new forms, styles, and characters in her work - expanding everything she's known for. Throughout it all, each piece is fittingly made with her own mark, and wherever her exploration goes, it unmistakably is Knotwork LA.
