Collection: Linda Christianson

Lindstrom, MN

Linda Christianson received her BA from Hamline University in St. Paul and attended the two-year Ceramic Studio Workshop at the Banff Centre School of Fine Arts in Alberta, Canada. She participates annually in the St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour in Minnesota, where her studio is located. She has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Minnesota State Arts Board, as well as two McKnight Foundation fellowships from Northern Clay Center. Christianson’s subtle, spontaneous work is found in collections across North America and is exhibited widely. Her woodfired pieces are not sculpture, but engaging tools. Christianson is interested in a pot that does its duty well, yet can stand on its own as a visual object. She aims to make a better cup each day.
