About Lynda Katz

            Lynda Katz has lived and worked in southeast Louisiana since 1973. She received her B.A. degree in 1968 from Douglass College in New Jersey, where she studied ceramics with Hui Ka Kwong and in 1971 received her M.A. in ceramics from Florida State University.  She has taught Ceramics and Art History at Southeastern Louisiana University and currently teaches Art History at the American Public University.

 

Lynda currently creates both one of a kind pieces and a line of functional and decorative porcelain at her studio outside Independence. Inspiration stems from the Louisiana landscape and studies in the history of ceramics, especially Chinese Song dynasty porcelains and Japanese folk pottery.

 

Her work is well known in the southeast and has been shown nationwide in shops, galleries and exhibitions. Her work has received numerous awards and is represented in private and public collections including the Fine Arts Museum of the South, Mobile, Alabama, White House Christmas Ornaments, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., and the LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts, Tallahassee, Florida.

Most recently her work from the Vitreous exhibition at the Clay center of New Orleans was featured in the September 2018 issue of Ceramics monthly in the Exposure section!
