My summer is going great. Classes were done a week ago and Melissa has put me to work at home. Lots of digging. We're putting in a substantial garden and raising chinckens. I was just thinking about you and our ongoing plans to (trade?) workshops. I think we just need to pick a week for you to come this way and figure things out that way. Let me know.
I just got your postcard for the Surgical Museum show -- FAR OUT!!! That is totally wonderful & I think your work is PERFECT for this venue. I am thinking about going up for SOFA; maybe i can go over and see it! Is this new work, or a mix of old and new? I recognize the balloon piece from your UIUC days -- did you re-inflate balloons for all those wire frames? You go, girl!
great, i saw some more of your work in columbus at the ODC show (I also had 2 pieces in it). i really loved that particular brooch in that show. would love to see more, i'm sure i'll see you around the toledo/BG scene.
NCECA 2013 Emerging Artist Linda Swanson makes us think about ceramic materials in a new and dynamic way. Her installation, site specific, fired and unfired work all has an emphasis on time, material and transformation. Linda generously shared her time and thoughts with me about her current studio practice and the path that has led her there. I hope you enjoy this interview with Linda Swanson. You can see more of her work at: …See More
