Linda Goldstone

"The challenge of designing cheerful, interesting tableware is intriguing. My goal is to make my pottery fun and exciting to hold and use, suited well for the food it serves and complementing the entire table setting.
   The white body of porcelain provides a bright background for my palette of colorants, or just as an all-white piece. Cobalt blue is one of my favorite colors for the brushed-on designs. These pieces blend well with other tableware. Polka dots are another favorite motif because of their upbeat look and cheerfulness."
