If you are looking for examples of my work you should try the blog I am able to maintain. Cannot seem to keep up with two. Great plan to verbalize on one and sell on the other but have not pulled that one off yet!
My latest pots, more on other site. Sept. 13, 2010
See LindaCowardPottery.blogspot.com for my latest work please.
Yes, sometime I will use this like a web site with items for sale but it seems managing two of these sights is more time consuming than I realized. So, for now check out items on LindaCowardPottery.blogspot.com It is the best I can do for now.
The joy of making pots is here! I am throwing small white clay bowls as I rebuild my stock. It is my special blend of white clay I used in the early 80's. It throws like butter and will be fun to glaze. I have also been gathering leaves and pressing them into the clay for some unique leaf pots. It is a pleasure to hand pick each leaf to press into clay. Oh, and I cannot make it through the fall without my Kokopelli soup blends. They make great, not to expensive gifts with the soup bowls. I have my old favorite Zuni Pot of Gold bean soup and two more faster cooking soups, Green Chili Corn Chowder and Tortilla Soup. They are all good as directed buy I love to add things to them and extend the flavors and experiment. I will carry these through the winter and they all run about $6 per package. The money helps benefit a dig in St. John Arizona and I have been there. Some of you may remember me telling the story about seeing the rabbit chase the snake and bite it. That is where it happened. What an omen or did the snake rob the rabbit's nest? I'll get pictures up of all these items for sale soon!
Brookside Pottery started in Tulsa in 1991. It is a working pottery studio with stoneware sculpture and dinnerware, clay glazes tools and equipment.
I have been making pottery and sculpture for over 35 years. In 1978 I finished my master's degree in ceramics from the University of Tennessee. I taught art at Webb middle school. I moved to Emory Va where I started Meadowview Pottery Workshop and taught part time at Emory and Henry College.My husband John and I moved to Austin Texas for his PHD and I worked at pottery shop Feats of Clay for 4 1/2 years. We moved to Norman OK for two years. Tulsa was our next move and I started Brookside Pottery about 18 years ago. I have studied with many significant potters across the nation including Fawn Navasie, Richard Zaken, Sylvia Hyman, Josh Deweiss, Hal Reiger and more. I have shown in McClung Museum,
Knoxville a couple of times, won various sculpture awards and most recently featured in 25 potters in Ok in Studio Potter magazine. I love raising my family and going to the movies with my husband. And, if I am not home I can only hope I am traveling in some exotic place and writing.
