About Knotwork LA
Founded by Linda Hsiao in 2012. Knotwork LA is an evolving collection handcrafted ceramic and wooden homegoods. Knotwork originally began as an outlet to identify work done during spare time, evenings and weekends with the desire to make beautiful useful things.
Born and raised in Orange County, Linda studied industrial design at Pratt in Brooklyn and graduated 2004. She spent a decade in the eyewear industry until her desire to work with her hands and create one-of-a-kind objects led her back to Southern California and to ceramics.
Linda’s move to Los Angeles in 2009 coincided with her re-interest in studio pottery and a love of exploring the outdoors, she draws on the landscape of her childhood and surroundings for much of the inspiration for her work. Which includes both functional and conceptual / decorative ceramics, woodware and home product design.
Each item is proudly handcrafted by Linda Hsiao in a small home studio in Los Angeles, California.
