Linda Hynes, potter

Artist’s Statement – Biography

In her log house studio located in the idyllic countryside near Merrickville, Linda creates porcelain and stoneware pottery with an emphasis on tea sets and dinnerware.

A professional potter for 40 years, Linda’s pots are committed to form and function while visually beautiful. Some pieces are carved with tools for textural interest. Others are individually decorated with oxides over the glazes or with a wax resist technique, opening up an infinite range of patterns and combinations.

All her work is high-fired to 1,300 degrees C in a gas kiln, which greatly enhances the rich quality of a wide variety of glazes. All glazes are lead free and intended for daily use.

Linda’s work is sold at her studio during a Spring Bargains sale, the MAG fall tour, a Christmas sale or by appointment. Linda is one of the owners of The Grotto Artworks, an artist run gallery in Merrickville representing the work of over 30 local fine craftsmen and artists. You will always find a nice selection of her work there.
