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 over 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.
