there are many people in this world whose talents i envy, but most of all i am always in awe of two kinds of people: artists and ceramicists (and often they are one and the same). there’s something so satisfying about ceramics, and though i have never attempted it myself i wish i could make… a bowl. and have it in my house and be like, “i made that.”
the work of Linda Hsiao aka Knotwork LA is especially awe-inspiring. her ceramics are gorgeous. she also designed The Rattle together with Kagan Taylor – a wooden baby rattle with a wonderful organic shape that looks perfect for those gummy baby moments.
Linda Hsiao is a freelance industrial designer specializing in eyewear and accessories, her many passions including gardening, cooking, ceramics and woodcarving have grown into a line of whimsical and precious objects made for the home. Inspired by the natural materials of wood and ceramic each piece is made by hand. Knotwork LA was created as a 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.
