LINDA DOHERTY - Instructor at MISSA 2020

Linda was born in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Her first experience with clay was getting her boots stuck in the gumbo during the spring thaw. She hated mud, so it is ironic that Linda developed a passion for working with clay. Clay captured her like the boot stuck in the gumbo and after 30 years, the rapture continues.


From her first class over 30 years ago and throughout her life as a potter, Linda still finds herself designing pots as she falls asleep each night. She enjoys the physicality of clay and pushing it to its limits. Her eclectic style can be explained by the synergies that evolve from traveling, teaching, creating, exhibiting and having a curious nature.
