Biographical Information: Linda has been a potter for the past 20 years, focusing on functional work. About six years ago, making bonsai containers caught her attention, and she has been learning, growing, and making bonsai pottery since then. She creates wheel thrown, hand built, and wheel thrown/altered work. Textures in the clay are often made with organic materials, handmade tools, or carving instruments. Linda makes all of her own glazes, firing in an electric kiln to cone 7 or 8. Her high fire stoneware is completely vitrified at that temperature. She lives in Western Michigan, but enjoys traveling in the United States and other countries. Other interests include fiber arts and surface design, watercolor painting, walking/hiking, and travel.
