Slideshow and Lecture by Linda Casbon
Brooklyn artist Linda Casbon constructs functional clay objects and large-scale ceramic sculpture and teaches at Pratt Institute and Hofstra University.
She studied design and ceramics at the University of Colorado (BENVD) and ceramics at Kent State University (MFA).
The boundary between two and three dimensions and the juxtaposition of physical and real versus illusory are important aspects of Linda's work.
"Painting on form is an aspect of ceramics that I have loved since my first wheel-throwing class.
When I was a student in Betty Woodman's class at the University of Colorado, assignments stressed the complementary nature of form and surface.
I wasn't particularly interested in painting or drawing on a two-dimensional surface, as the blank canvas was intimidating and didn't speak to me but painting a clay object was another story.
It allowed me to respond to the form and surface with immediacy and felt like a collaboration between myself and the object."
