Glasswork – Stained, Mosaic Art, and Kiln Fused

 

Linda began her career as a registered nurse and continued in that capacity until her first child was born in 1985. Since then, she has been working with glass, and teaching glass art to children and adults at her studio in York and in workshops across the state.

Her art education began in New York City in 1974 with classes in photography and darkroom technique. In 1980, she studied stained glass during an intensive two-week class in Nashville. She later studied with Isaiah Zager in Philadelphia and learned mosaic mural design. In 2006 Linda learned advanced glass fusing at John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina. Although she has had extensive training in glass and mosaics, her skills in quilting and hot glass are self-taught.

Linda’s jewelry consists of layers of dichroic glass fused together at very high temperatures in a glass kiln - a process originally produced by the aerospace industry. Transmitted color and reflective colors, which shift and blend depending on the angle of the light, gives this medium its unique quality.

Linda’s mosaic work led her to organize youth mosaic workshops with the Black Belt Glass Arts Guild of Sumter County. During the workshops children created mosaics to fill broken sections of York’s sidewalks, mosaic windows for the Akron Boys & Girls Club in Hale County, and mosaic stepping stones for a Black Belt Garden at the University of West Alabama. Each stone features a flower native to the Black Belt.

Linda’s work has been on display at numerous galleries, shows, and festivals throughout Alabama and Mississippi, as well as at her studio The Cotton Patch Art Studio in York. Visit her website at www.littleriverart.com
