Linda Huey is known for sculptural work which combines wheel-thrown and hand-built components. Early work was wheel-thrown stoneware and porcelain functional works. A typical surface treatment was the use of oxides under a clear overglaze. Huey moved on to create works which combined the vessel, functionality, and sculpture.

This body of work clearly demonstrates her interest in exploring nature and the relationship of growth, decay, and human culture. For example, a typical vase form may represent a plant form while the surface stamping technique employs repurposed objects such as toy trucks or computer parts. Huey’s sculptures range from tabletop scale up to 9’ tall. Huey’s most well-known work, Dark Garden, (2013) has traveled extensively.
