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 function, and yet remain visually beautiful.

Some pieces are carved with tools or individually decorated

with oxides on the glazes. More recently, she has employed

a wax resist technique, opening up an infinite range of

patterns and combinations and requiring considerable



All her work is high-fired to 1,300 °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.
