"The interpreted functional vessel brings people into personal contact with an art object in daily life. The transformation of common terra cotta clay into a resonant object points the way toward parallel transformations possible through the observed moments of personal life."
Linda Arbuckle Biography:
The interpreted functional vessel brings people into personal contact with an art object in daily life. The transformation of common terra cotta clay into a resonant object points the way toward parallel transformations possible through the observed moments of personal life.
Linda's work in majolica-glazed earthenware has been recognized through an Artists' Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as a Florida Individual Artists' Fellowship. Artist-in-residence positions in Wales and the People's Republic of China have provided further balance of Eastern and Western resources in her works. NCECA will be presenting Arbuckle with Excellence in Teaching Honors at the 2015 conference.
Linda has presented summer faculty sessions at Penland School, Arrowmont School, Haystack Mountain School, Appalachian Center, Santa Fe Clay, The Odyssey Center, and the Archie Bray Foundation, as well as visiting artist workshops at many art centers and universities across the U.S.
