LINDA LJUNGGREN

Linda decorates her “rice cups” and other ceramics in stoneware clay with a design language reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s. She spent a few years working in Asia, which inspired her with new ideas for shapes and decoration. Her design background sometimes gives her work a graphical expression and pared-down simplicity.
