Read on to find out more about Linda’s work and view her gallery.
Linda originally comes from the Isle of Bute, a small island on the west coast, where she lived for 25 years. She is now a contemporary silversmith living and working in London. Working mainly in sheet metal, using restrained geometric forms Linda is continually inspired by the architecual landscape.
Linda created an inventive handle-less teapot for Lulu. The pot is cupped in both hands to be poured, a ceremonial gesture reminiscent of Japanese tea rituals and also a sign of friendship when proffering the tea to a companion. To keep the tea hot and the hands cool, Linda worked hard with an engineer to perfect the thermal insulation, a difficult technique that has rendered wonderful results.
