Linda immigrated from Scotland in 1974. After graduating from Sheridan School of Craft & Design in 1985, she started her first studio in Hamilton, Ontario, then moved to Muskoka where she operated Northshore Pottery for almost 20 years. In 2009, Linda moved to Cape Breton and opened Big Hill Pottery near Baddeck. Linda loves to create with texture and form, putting much emphasis on the function of the item. A great deal of consideration is given to the total integration of each piece. All pottery can be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher.
