Conference Panelist and Demonstrator
Linda Christianson is an independent studio potter who lives and works in rural Minnesota. Upon completing her education at the Banff Centre School of Fine Arts (Banff, Alberta, Canada) in 1977, she immediately set up a studio, built her first poorly designed wood kiln, and has been firing with wood ever since. She has designed many wood kilns for schools and individuals. Linda exhibits nationally and internationally, including one person exhibits in London and St. Louis. Her pieces are in numerous public and private collections, including the American Museum of Ceramic Art and the Glenboe Museum. Linda has taught at colleges and universities, including Carleton College and the Hartford Art School. She has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the McKnight Foundation. One of her goals is to make a better cup each day.
