MudSlingers Pottery Works
For the first half of her adult life, Linda worked in a family business as a caterer and professional cook as well as in corporate pharmaceuticals as a Program Director and Event Planner. Throughout her life, she worked in various art mediums including oil painting, arts and crafts, water color, until she found her true love: clay. After realizing she can pull pots out of a kiln at 1750 degrees and place them onto flammable substances producing breathtaking results, a pyromaniac was born.
Since then, Linda has been working with some of the foremost potters in the US, constantly improving her knowledge and skills in the throwing and firing processes, learning more interesting and unique techniques to produce gallery quality pieces and to now educate others interested in learning these firing methods.
Her works are sold at the Main Avenue Galleria in Ocean Grove, NJ, The Art Factory, Hawley, PA and at shows throughout New Jersey, New York and parts of Pennsylvania. Classes given in wheel throwing and hand building as well as workshops.
