Of Monsters & Myths 2Linda, a longtime member of the shop, says of her work:
“Stories of other times and places, myth and legend have always fascinated me. For this show I have embraced theses stories; creating free standing sculptures, wall pieces of winged dragons, mere people and other creatures of my imagination.

Of Monsters & Myths 3I use slabs of clay to build my pieces starting from the bottom, and working up. They are hollow inside, so I work by keeping the clay moist and soft enough to continue building upward, while letting the piece harden enough to hold up the weight of the work.
I studied under Bill Sage at Eastern Washington University and graduated with a B.A. in Art. I became a member of the Pottery Place Plus in August of 1979.”
