Lynda Jones

Photo of Lynda  JonesBorn in Vancouver, I grew up in North Burnaby and spent most of my first twenty five year career in the production and management of graphic art projects for large corporations, advertising agencies and design studios in Vancouver.

'I had a life-long passion for pottery but it wasnít until 1992 after moving to the North Okanagan that I started making it, as my second career. I enrolled in the ceramics summer program at Emily Carr College and since then have attended many workshops with internationally known potters, through the Potters Guild of B.C., Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts and Red Deer College.

I live with my husband on 2-1/2 Acres near Falkland, B.C. My continuing vision is to work in the peaceful natural setting of my home, producing quality pieces for discerning customers.'

' Burnished and Smoke-Fired Pottery

My work always begins on the wheel and the influence of native art from many countries is evident in my burnished and smoke-fired vessels.

Incised works:

This work benefits from my attention to detail and my finishing which has come to be a signature of my work.
However, as I mature as an artist, I am learning not to calculate and plan everything, that each thing we do is a step which flows to the next thing, and to let go, trust and just know that "it all fits".
My work reflects my need for simplicity and an even balance in my life. However, in this continuing struggle for balance Iím learning to accept change as a good thing. The spectacular effects of the smoke firing are helping me to learn that imbalance and spontaneity can also be a good thing.
