A description of her work -

Linda Chew's pieces are decorated with delicate surface patterns and textures, incorporating impressed lace. Glazed in blue and white. Signed 'chew' on the back

Following a long family tradition of lace making, sewing and embroidery, Linda Chew was encouraged to experiment with cloth, needle and thread from an early age. Consequently her love of fabrics, textures and patterns has always influenced her work with clay.

She has a large collection of old family lace, vintage textiles and her own knitted and embroidered pieces that she uses for impressing into the clay. Her own carved ceramic stamps inspired by local flora and fauna plus gathered grasses and leaves from the surrounding countryside, garden and allotment also provide her with delicate silhouettes to add to the final design.
Linda works from her studio at home in Winchester, Hampshire, all work is fired in an electric kiln to 1220c
